Poor management

Worked in Burton for many years. Management are bully’s that seem to have pick of the week to pick on. Work life balance poor and very stressful working all over Burton with no support when ur at a patients house and need help. As an independent Nurse you’re constantly watched and brought down in anything you do. Please avoid or watch your back.


The patients


Too many to list.

Fast paced and great team work

The work is very fast paced depending on your department and job role. The best part about working for the NHS is the teamwork, everyone is always there for a helping hand and management take care off their staff.


Nice staff


Very fast paced

My demographic not welcome. Too much politics.

The NHS is a highly politicised and demoralising place to work if you're not one of the favoured demographics. Complain and you'll be sacked. Promotion is gained by playing the social game with the girls.

Avoid as a domestic/ cleaner

So many people yell at you for no reason and when you complain about it the management does nothing about it. You will end up doing other peoples work and be criticise if you don't do it. Too many tasks to fill out solo. Repetitive tasks and overall depressing environment to be in. The nursing staff was nice even though I didn't have time on shift to talk to them.




Co workers rude lazy out of date management

A breath of fresh air!

Don't know where to begin. I have been here for 6 month now and I thought it was too good to be true........but its not! Management and colleagues are so helpful, the culture and engagement are 2nd to none. I get to help people everyday and have my work recognised regularly.


Hybrid working, flexible working, term time working, culture, engagement, blue light card, supportive management, career pathways


All NHS staff arw underpaid!

Easy job with good local management

Easy job with good local management, well maintained modern vehicles, with issues that are reported being rectified quickly.Poor pay for the qualifications required for the role, with very little internal training being provided to develop. HGV Drivers are on the same pay band as van drivers, despite obviously having a greater responsibility and the need to hold and maintain a professional license.Limited progression, highly recommended as an easy retirement job or for those looking to build experience prior to moving on elsewhere.

Productive and Fun place to work

Such a nice team to work with, management are very supportive, you are learning new things everyday. Meet all sorts of patients. The office is an enjoyable setting, everyone supports each other.

Unsupportive , toxic workplace

Dreadful place, unsupported & ‘thrown in at the deep end’. Very little initial training & had to constantly ask for an induction which eventually I was offered 2 months after starting. Constantly understaffed to the point of being dangerous but when reported by my colleagues and myself nothing was done. Toxic workplace so they have to constantly recruit to replace the experienced staff who are overworked and burnt out.


Can’t think of any


Constantly asked to work extra as always understaffed, low wages, poor communication

Toxic Management,

Toxic Management, always want more and more. Favouritism is rife , if they don't like you , they try everything in their power to get rid of you . One good thing the policies are very family oriented but management don't read what you are entitled to and when they are shown them they are still reluctant to give you what you are entitled to .




Never enough

Fair workplace

Fair workplace, good people and fair pay Long hours, nights and weekends depending on your job roll. Staff hub for you to eat lunch with free breakfast in the mornings and dinner and sandwiches at night. Canteen with discounted hot and cold food for staff too.


Long house

A great organisation to work for, good purpose

You have good purpose working for the NHS, and although individual managers can be subjective, the role is great. The benefits working for an organisation like the NHS are great, like pension, protected hours, and annual leave. I enjoy the working with people aspect.


Pension, protected hours


Shifts, politics
