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
Too many high paid bosses.Unsure why we need them all
Although I was on bank staff on the forensic wards all other nursing assistants and nurses in charge were very approachable and willing to help I did get the hours I wanted like 60 hours a week and was paid on time no problem and the training was excellent.
Free parking and use of on site gym
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 .
Variety of tasks, everyday is different
Encouraged to utilise all my years of experience to support the work required working with young people in North Yorkshire Supportive team and allowed flexibilty to work autonomously but with supervision as required
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.
Staff are like family. Good team work.
Too many managers, who don't care, they just want to tick boxes.
Rosters are not fair the same staff get all the enhancement shifts They don’t give you a role on roster They are always short staffed and mess you about to fit you in were there short In my experience you be better off working bank than permanent so you have the upper hand in what you pick
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
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

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.
Good academic support.
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.
Good employer, you can develop a career here. Good shift pattern, great workplace and fantastic team. Supportive in enabling you to develop your skills and advance your role in the service. Training relevant to your role and opportunities to take on greater responsibility including management responsibility.
Great company very rewarding
Hard work long hours, rewarding.
hotel services management can be patrinising they show no appriciation for your work treat you like children .they allow bullying and when its reported its pushed under the carpet, in this job its one rule for one and one rule for the other .I get on well with clinical staff and housekeepers but moral is very low due to lack of support and honesty.i enjoy the work i do BUT its never good enough its the pay and benefits that keeps most of the staff there .
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
Lots of discounts off certain places insurance ! Restaurants etc
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.
Good holiday entitlement
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
To much CQC involvement
