Not enough staff at ground level. Unable to take breaks .Expected to work more than contracted hours mainly due to low staffing levelVery rare the managers will help out at ground levels .Lots of agency staff who get paid a huge salary compared to others of the same grade
Pros
Holiday entitlement
Cons
Too many high paid bosses.Unsure why we need them all

A fab trust to work for , yes it can be stressful and fast paced but it's so rewarding , working in mental health is busy but the time flies by , and it's a totally different atmosphere from a regular hospital environment. The range of patients you look after is vast and varied . You do lots of different tasks throughout your shift , but each one teaches you something new . Everyday is different , and staff are lovely .
Pros
Variety of tasks, everyday is different
Cons
Long hours

Tewv is a respectable Trust who do a lot of good for patients individual needs. Also a range of illnesss and wide age range, there are things that need rectified at management level ie too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
Pros
Staff are like family. Good team work.
Cons
Too many managers, who don't care, they just want to tick boxes.

Love working for them but the wage is low you do get enhances but compared to private company it’s low . Even if you have experience they start you off on the lower wage if you not worked for the NHS before. I find is unfair if you have all the experience and the qualifications

TEWV is a great trust to work in. They have a wonderful support system for staff. The community team is very supportive especially of international medical graduates. It can become busy, and administrative work needs doing too. Overall, it's a place to start.
Pros
Good academic support.
Cons
Can become quite busy and lots of admin work.

Although we had a fantastic team and manager the workload was overbearing. The focus of the NHS now seems to be as a political vote winner. The great emphasis is to complete time consuming audits which give a very bias picture of the work undertaken and not to serve their just purpose to benefit care. Make the NHS a multi party service.

Worked as s Health care assistant cared for a variety of people younger and older with mental illnesses throughout my 30 yrs service I thoughtfully enjoyed it but did not like the 12 hr shifts at the end of my time there ! This meant seeing less of my family ! So retired last year looking for something less hours ! Need to be busy and always loved department stores and people and clothes
Pros
Lots of discounts off certain places insurance ! Restaurants etc
Cons
Long 12 hrs shifts no good at my age 62

Lots of new learning offered, management very supportive. Staff moral not so good, excellent holiday entitlement. Staff shortages across the hospital can make a stressful environment at times, both physically and mentally.
Pros
Good holiday entitlement
Cons
Staff shortages

Poorly ran with inept management with no background in nursing. Complete disregard for staff safety in what can be a very dangerous environment. Always short staffed and as long as training targets are being met for funding they don’t care
Pros
Enhanced hours
Cons
To much CQC involvement
