I did enjoy working for CAMHS at NSFT, however I found myself overworked and underappreciated - working at the age of 16 surrounded by co-workers in their mid-twenties I was seen as the baby of the group and my significance overlooked. My workload was overbearing and my own mental health ignored to a breaking point. I left after presenting at a conference and disappearing from work and no heed taken by my colleagues, supervisor or area manager.
Extreme work hours
The experience I have had was extremely disappointing I had a very poor induction and was told if the fire alarm goes off head for the nearest exit wasn't told where to meet. The atmosphere you could cut with a knife and not very welcoming either so if your face fits you'll be fine also no training was given. explanation of what to do you not allowed to use your own initiative
Bullying is rife it’s that simple. If you dare to make a complaint about your seniors, be prepared to have the tables turned back on to you. It’s in special measures for a reason.
It’s only 7.5hrs
Too many to mention
I have worked in the trust for the past 10 years but have now hit breaking point. Constant cuts, useless manager, high sickness rates, poor staff retention, ridiculous caseloads and high waitlists. Staff are not heard, they are struggling with no support. No time for breaks. No support.
Management, waitlist, lack of support, high sickness and staff turrnover
Lack of suitable IT equipment Lack of induction Disorganised Far too long waiting lists High staff turnover High staff sickness levels Too high caseloads Not surprised it’s an inadequate service
I enjoyed my admin role but when the going got tough due to the very strict deadlines and lack of staff due to cost savings, support went out of the window. One of the values is to step into other’s shoes: good on paper but didn’t happen. For my own well-being I am no longer there.
Holiday and sick pay. Pension.
Struggling to hit deadlines. Not enough support.

I enjoyed my time here at Coastal IDT and have found the management extremely supportive in allowing me to adapt my hours to attend college in order to develop myself further .
Friendly helpful team members
Pressured working environment
I had amazing co workers but I left due to the job never felt very secure. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the patients and having such a good team to work with. I learned a lot working within this job role and also gained my NVQ 1/2.
i enjoyed co workers and working with the patients
shifts were unreliable due to poor management and job insecurity
Very simply put, the NSFT operates a system where by money is saved 'on the shop floor' whilst those in charge of the budget retain their overly paid jobs. It is a place of too many managers. My ward alone has three and yet we are regularly understaffed on ward with 3 staff to 16 patients particularly when escorted leave has to be facilitated daily, some of which are mentally unwell convicted criminals whom have spent time in the system in excess of 15 years. If it were not for the amazing staff in the nursing teams that go unrecognised, unrewarded and are poorly paid, I would have left the role a long time ago.
Co-worker nursing staff
the money saving drive leaves patients and staff struggling, long hours, low pay, you may be moved anywhere within this trust and have no say in it, very poor managerial support, failure sickness system.
when i go to work every day is different.Our service users are unpredictable, the imediate management has been fair. I work with nice people. we have to deal with a lot of aggressive service users, but we hood training to deel with this, and plenty of back up.the trust is going through changes and the job security is not there.The service users i look after are not always responsible for there actions, i love it when they are happy ,they can make me smile
well paid. good conditions.interesting service users and pleasent staff to work with
