HCA/Support Worker in Broomfield, Essex
on 14 July 2020
Left to your own devices!
The ward I worked on was friendly, but there isn’t enough time to train people and you are left to your own devices to figure things out. Shifts consisted of 13 hours and were draining, you are expected to run around like mad and it isn’t worth the stress. One good thing is the security of working within the NHS, however it isn’t worth becoming ill over it.

Numbers not people
I worked in the Therapy department for a few months and eventually quit due to the oppressive nature of the management. Only band 8s and above were 'allowed' to request flexible working hours...despite the hospital being open 24/7 and there always being a need for therapy input, no option to discuss adjustments to pay, scolded for talking to patients for too long who were going through traumatic experiences and needed to talk to a friendly face, unable to practice autonomously as managers were watching everything you do and picking up insignificant things (just to prove a point it felt like). Managers do not value their staff as people, we were just numbers on a page. Also they expect you to work 11 days in a row and if you dare to need a break/respite or just have life plans outside of work then you need to book precious annual leave to do this. Very short staffed most of the time with one therapist covering 3-4 wards. Impossible. There seemed to be a leaving card to sign every week and huge turnovers of staff. The worst experience I've had in an nhs workplace and I would not recommend it to anyone who wants to work to live and not live to work.

Supportive environment to work in
Every job is different but most have a supprotive work environment, but can be stressful when doing a lot of hours in the week. A lot of friendly people that work there.

Mental abuse by senior team leader
I was looking for some part time work and came across this position. I worked here around a year ago. The place is a disgrace. I left because of management. I had 6 hours training and was expected to know everything straight away. Team leaders tried to bully me. And the senior team leader NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE!!!!!!!!! CQC should get involved! And as for pay, you have to fight to get any!

Terrible training, no support, some staff were ok but wow the main manager I worked there for 4 years and got 1 hello out of it. JOKE of a place stay well clear! Money sounds good but you wont get it!
