Having Your Say

Your opinion is really important. We have regular team meetings which give you a chance to give and get ideas to ensure you keep developing your practice. We carry out regular staff surveys which gives everyone the chance to have their say about working life. Our staff forum, United Voice, ensures you have the chance to talk about how to improve working life.

Looking After You

Your health and wellbeing is as important to us as it is to you. That’s why we invest in a free employee assistance programme which offers counselling and advice on legal, personal and work related issues 24 hours a day. We also provide support from occupational health and physiotherapy services should you ever need medical treatment. All staff are covered by life assurance, so if the unexpected should happen, you can be safe in the knowledge that your loved ones will be provided for.

All of our services operate on a rota basis, which includes working weekends, evenings and sleepover shifts. This means we are able to accommodate a range of flexible working arrangements – we can work together to make sure you’re working the best shifts for you and us.

Valuing Individuals

We are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer which means that we have created a place to work where openness, understanding and acceptance of everyone is at the heart of what we do.
