Support Services Assistant in North Powys
on 5 July 2021
Managers aren't proactive

You turn up on time, care about the job, bring up issues and suggestions which get ignored by managers. It feels like your an inconvenience for having the temerity to question poor practices or courses that actually increase the chances of an accident. Buildings are in an appalling state and are left to deteriorate to the point of collapse. Nursing staff and administration are great to work with. Facility managers aren't skilled or interested in their job

Unbelievable

I got employed as a bank driver just before lockdown. It's 8 months later and I still haven't had my training so I finally left after waiting for so long. I received very infrequent contact, sometimes months apart, and what communication I did receive was ambiguous and left me even more confused. The uncertainty and painfully slow enrolment process caused me unnecessary stress. You'd think that a health board would be properly organised but its just poorly run - they haven't a clue. They seriously need to have a good think about how they organise their department because this leaves people feeling unsupported and forgotten about. I know of many others who feel the same and are just fed up.

Management is all over the place

Too many busy bodies in the organisation in higher up jobs doing very little. During 'covid' no staff care, reduced hours little admin or anything getting done with the excuse of 'covid' constantly given. Meanwhile nurses and the like are out there getting on with the job with ppe etc. The 'actionpoint' online help system is useless, telephone lines do not get through and while the patients and area is lovely the admin and management of the health board is truly shocking hence why i left. You really are treated like a number, not an individual, and if your in north powys and have an employee related problem or anything you have to ring through down south, wait weeks and still sometimes problem not solved. No access to payslip even after leaving even though was lied to by admin saying it was 'getting posted out'. Truly shocking health board to work for, and even my line managers and colleagues have an awful experience. The NHS benefits itself are good, but PTHB is awful. Even pre covid the management is too busy making silly policies and changes all the time with meetings while the clinical staff are rushed off their feet.

CAMHS Nurse in Brecon, Powys

Great place to work

Powys is a large, rural county, that doesn't have it's own general hospital. This highlights the challenge of providing health services to a relatively small population over a large area. The environment is wonderful, however there can be a lot of travelling.

Probably the biggest barrier to working for this employer, is the cost of housing, which limits the choice for a single income family.
