Medical HR Officer in Worthing, West Sussex
on 15 February 2020
Bad Management
I worked in three different roles over four years. Facilities and Estates was a lovely department. I then progressed and ended up working in a department which was so awful it made me incredibly unwell. Senior management were appalling and pulled rank. It became a nightmare to go to work. I have never experienced anything like it in my whole career.
Recruitment Administrator in West Sussex

Challenging and tiring
I worked at WSHT for just over 2 years, during that time we had a constant high staff turnover leading to a high amount of pressure on the staff members who stayed. I started and finished each day feeling like we were constantly behind - felt like when raising problems these were ignored by management higher up. The heavy workload, lack of recognition, and lack of acknowledgement of problems often lead to negative moods and resulted with disputes within the team. Direct line management were always approachable and friendly, and tried their best to support us and raise problems that affected us (I think the problem was with who/when they tried to raise it higher). As a whole the Trust does have some great values and I did feel as if the exec team have great ideas and intentions, I just feel the corporate/ administrative side often gets overlooked.
Bank Health Care Assistant in Worthing, West Sussex
on 3 June 2020
Fast pace and supportive
As bank staff I go into a lot of unknown places, they are all supportive and helpful, However, it is fast paced and busy. I booked shifts through an app and just turned up to the ward required

Management dependant
I worked for nearly 20 years in the trust and the job was brilliant - loved it - then management came along and spoilt everything. I had worked weds and Thursday for 15 years and then management said they were giving me two weeks notice to work mon and tues one week then wed and fri the following week or whatever they chose- explained that as a mum this wasn’t possible so threatened with disciplinary (refusing to work!) The family friendly policy disappeared! Told to work in departments that wasn’t qualified too - not given annual leave - just a few examples. My management were awful but I heard of other wards/departments which treated their staff well so it’s pot luck but I know there are a lot of disgruntled staff working there. Would never go back as it’s turned into a toxic environment where managers bully staff - I’ve escaped!

Pleasant working environment
Friendly hospital, good relationships between all levels of staff and inter department. Issues with lack of resources and short staffing, but that’s the same anywhere.
