Customer Patient Service Therapist in Burton-On-Trent, Staffordshire
on 19 October 2021
Horrendous
STAY CLEAR! The only thing that keeps you going is your colleagues. Management is horrendous they do not care about your wellbeing after many conversations with HR and management due to illness still did not get the support and help needed. They care more about your STATS than anything else. They focus on how long you are going to the toilet, breaks etc. Repetitive workload with no support from team leaders.

All work, no life balance
Nowhere near enough time to finish route on time. Suppose to be a 10.5 hour day including 45 min break. You end taking a 15 min break and still finish late with no overtime paid. When you approach management about this they deflect and generally lie to you .You are only told your start time for next day between 8 and 9pm the night before so essentially you are on an unpaid retainer from Monday to Friday as you can't plan anything outside of work during the week.Untrained or unqualified staff in important positions.

Reactive not proactive. Poor service, terrible company, toxic culture, non existent communication, but patients are great!
If you came into nursing to be a nurse this job is not for you. The patients and nursing side are great but that is where it ends. The patients are the forgotten people in this company. This company is poorly run, does not take feedback on board or learn from mistakes. I used to have faith in the CEO but not now. You try your best for the patient in very difficult circumstances. There are a lot of problems but everything is left for the nurse to explain to the patient, do not expect anyone else to sort it, most clock off at 5. Lower management try but they have no voice. This company do not help the patient have their best day everyday. They are more bothered about their reputation.If you don't like driving this is not the job for you. You will go everywhere. You will do everything. Do not be fooled by the posts for specialised roles for example a chemo nurse. You will be doing a lot of other stuff too which they don't tell you. There is weekend work, which is fine, you expect it as a nurse. The scheduling system does not work. You will wave at your colleague as you pass each other. Driving time is a complete joke. Who gives time as the crow flies? We have to go by road. You will be stressed.If you are not a sycophant but want to progress this is not the job for you. Unfair promotions, a distinct lack of internal promotion or advancement opportunities. If you have an opinion, this is not the job for you. The management do not like feedback, complaints or suggestions. They disregard any experience or skills you may have or could help with. If you stand up for what you believe is right you will know about it. No free thinkers allowed. Micromanagement is rife. Bullying is subtle but common. If you are in the "Click" though you can get away with a lot.Internal bickering, mistakes. There is a big blame culture and passing the buck. There is a lack of accountability and responsibility. Communication is non existent. There is no learning from mistakes. Staff are very tired and frustrated. Moral is low. Staff turnover is high. There are reasons for this. There is a lot of extra admin. You expect mandatory training but there is an excess of training and you are constantly hounded to complete it but given no time to do this, it is expected in your already precious home time.If you like living your life, seeing your friends/family and value your mental health this is not the job for you.

Patient Liaison Lead in Burton-On-Trent
on 6 September 2021
Lack of effective leadership and poor culture
Unfortunately I believe Sciensus lack effective leadership within my current department, focusing on KPIs that have little relevance to the role and focusing on financial incentives rather than quality leadership skills. Holiday cover is very poor and work is expected to be completed before going on leave or on return. High rate of staff turnover and failure to appoint replacement staff. Compensation is comparatively low for similar roles and progression is slow. People can be offered 'promotions' without a fair interview process which can be demoralising. Highly emotive work due to often dealing with incidents and complaints from seriously ill patients, hard to switch off when not at work. Very rewarding environment when things go well and patients receive life extending treatment however not everyone's work ethic matches the serious nature of the business. Large number of complaints can be frustrating and demoralising.
