Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust Employee Review

Lack support and progression

Employed as a senior experienced nurse, all of my suggestions for improvement or change were ignored. Do not allow you to progress to higher bands unless your prepared to work full time

Fab colleagues and passionate team wanting to make a difference

I’ve worked for the trust for 3 years, my day-to-day involves a lot of fire fighting and things are difficult since covid with lots of backlogs and pressure so it can be quite stressful but my team are amazing and very supportive, I also believe management are passionate about getting things better for all patients in Cornwall. They are trying their best in extremely difficult circumstances. The culture within my team is great, really encouraging and supportive. I feel valued and my contributions are encouraged. Although that’s not the case across the trust unfortunately some teams are struggling with this. The hardest part of my job is relying on other people to get back to me and to want to change things for improvement. Unfortunately because the pressure is on their isn’t necessarily the time to focus on improvements.Overall I really like working here, the majority of people work hard to make a difference and that’s where I get job satisfaction from.


Good opportunities for development and career growth and passionate team of people


Very pressured environment that can be draining

Great place to work with amazing, kind colleagues, however times are changing and wages and work life balance are being left behind. Very interesting and varied job that keeps you learning and in your toes.


Career. Always learning. You make a difference.


Long hours and nights. Poor wages.
