Initially a nice place to work with hard working dedicated consultants and staff. Following a number of changes of management, the current one the worst, the department deteriorated and morale was very low with a number of the original staff leaving. The management style became dictatorial and arrogant and I became disallousioned. It was such a shame to leave the NHS as I believe in the fundamental values of this organisation but continued bad management will ruin the ability of dedicated caring staff to work in this environment.
Very bad management
Currently working with a small team at MTW. Managers gang up like children on power play. Sadly, bullying is prevalent with this particular Trust. HR really needs to to re train their managers or else, there would always be a higher number of staff turnover.
Good 0800-1600 job The trust invested in my training as Transport Manager.I have now qualified as a Transport Manager Some staff come across as being militant but that is due to quite low salaries. Culture can be frustrating at times as in its not my job. I enjoy working as part of a team.
Good work life balance
Salary not representative to responsibility
Everything fine. It’s more better of trust pay clinical pharmacy technician band 5 salary as other hospitals. All pharmacy technician should trained for Accuracy checking of dispensed medicines and 2 hours slot wee
My first time joining the NHS, I came from a visual merchandising background within retail. I joined Pembury hospital as a theatre support worker. Was told I would get training and support for the first 6 months. Didn’t really get either. The vibe of most staff was cliquey and rude. The friendlier staff were helpful and supportive but it was rare you were put with someone who wanted to help you. No professional or structured training was put in place. I unfortunately fell ill 3momths in, with glandular fever and then was off for about 2.5months. When I returned I wasn’t given the rest of my learning/training like they agreed and was shoved in at the deep end. I became very stressed and uncomfortable when put in areas or tasks I was unsure or not trained to do. There’s only so many times you can speak out or try to address the issue but the management always brushed it off and you was just made to continue. I was eventually taken sick again and signed off. I never returned after, and handed in my notice. Was such a shame as I had high hopes to enjoy my time there and Gain a career. All my family work for the NHS and love it. I’m determined though to continue to find a job/career within the nhs. Just better management and training.

Jobs at Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust
My usual day at work I found fulfilling and multi tasked, with plenty to keep me occupied. I enjoyed the team I worked with, and I found it to be very rewarding especially when booking in patients. I had a very good relationship with the consultants that I booked for. I found them all to be very approachable, which made the job comfortable. At one point we had an amazing manager, it was a joy to work under her, and due to that, nothing was too hard to comply with. She showed us respect, and consequently she received respect. The hardest part of the job was the bureaucracy. And the most enjoyable part of the job was putting a smile on patients faces.
Not a great place to work, management style is not motivating. Very autocratic management style. Constantly asked to take on more work with no back-up. Very poor computer systems. Too muh work and not enough people.
close to home
Bad management very autocratic styles
Health records is a very physical job. A typical day starts with putting away box loads of files. The workplace culture was team work because there was a lot of sick leave. Management was not too good.
Can't think of any.
It is a grate place to work, I have never been bored since starting work here, the lower management are the best iv every worked for, they are there to help you as much as they can the only things that let the job down is the low pay and you are forever against upper management trying to save money where they can.
lower management, work colleges
uper managment, low wage, not a lot of incentives
Maidstone and tunbridge nhs was very interesting lots of different jobs to do such as seeing to the patients care helping with feeds for patients who were unable to do it themselves due to their illness you could do courses to help you approve your jobs. You could get upgraded through your courses and the more you did the more interesting the job became meeting and greeting the patients and seeing them improving with care and going home or somewhere they could live with help.as there were two hospitals you could choose where you wanted to go thus giving you the experience of all sides off medical care.
I loved my job at Tunbridge Wells Hospital, I was able to do so much and help so many people. I was working with a great bunch of people and I got to learn so much too. I would have been promoted if I hadn't decided to move to Australia to study Nursing.
