Current Employee in Truro
on 17 May 2022
Rewarding but stressful, long hours and often demanding both physically and mentally.
Working for the NHS offers many opportunities in training and development along with benefits. However it is both physically and mentally demanding, often stressful and demanding and not to be entered into lightly. RCHT varies depending on your specific ward or place of work for how these aspects vary.
Health Care Support Worker in Truro
on 10 May 2022
Draining , stressful & overall challenging
Overall RCHT is an extremely stressful and draining place to work with little to no help and support from line managers & on shift nurses. Along side caring for multiple patients at a time you have to deal with other members of staff making your 12 hour shift day much harder but being cold , disrespectful and extremely hurtful. However the bond you grow with the patients you care for if absolutely magical and the hourly pay is very good but absolutely not worth destroying your mental & physical health over.
Band 2 assistant in Truro
on 5 January 2022
A job for life. Opportunities to progress are there but you have to want to. Lots of people are happy to stay in the same role.
Depending on your banding, it’s a pretty safe secure and stress free ( sometimes) jobYou will work hard for little financial reward, the NHS runs on goodwill I’d say.. lots of unhappy staff members and very low morale.Can be busy, can also be boring.
Hospital Receptionist in Tower block

Great environment
Great environment to work with and to provide excellent service to customers and staff. Loved the department I work in and loved working with a team and other professionals. Great outdoor space to get away from the busy environment inside. Friendly staff and patients and enjoyed every minute I was there.
Senior Research Administrator in Truro
on 6 October 2021
Stressful environment- Research Department
The Research Department at RCHT in Truro could be the most rewarding place to work, however it is grossly understaffed and the most stressful place I have worked. The three top senior management team have lead a bullying culture. A very new lead has started and time will tell if she has the ability to change things. The department operates against many of the values of RCHT and speaking up is not an option. I sorely hope things do change for the sake of all the staff.
