It’s decent

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It can be stressful, but interesting. Sometimes feels poorly managed but it really depends on your manager and team. Long hours, 12-14 hours. It can be dangerous sometimes.

No support from management

Working in mental health, there is literally no support from seniors, massive gap between step care. Teams put all in and the senior management expects a lot in return no training and support for staff available.


Exhausting case load, you will only learn by making mistake and someone telling you off.

Unsupportive management

The support given to junior staff from the upper management is very poor and staff are generally underappreciated. There are numerous managers with roles that no one really knows what it is they actually do on a daily basis.




Unsupportive and dismissive management system.

Friendly staff and clean environment. Was allowed to talk to patients and take their medication history upon arrival. Learned communication skills and time taking when speaking to patient.

A good Hospital and a good place to work and learn

I have worked at Lewisham NHS for over eight years both in Lewisham Hospital and also Lewisham Community Healthcare. I thoroughly enjoy working at Lewisham Hospital. Although it can be challenging at times and extremely busy Lewisham Hospital is very supportive in staff training, providing a number of courses for staff to do which helps a lot. Lewisham Hospital is very committed to patient care and tries its best to manage the needs of patients. Management are not always supportive and can be hard to contact, workload can be heavy going but overall I enjoy working here. It is a good Hospital, always trying to do well and support all. I would recommend working here, but you have to be dedicated and hard working and prepared to be flexible.


Learning and commitment to do well
