Former Employee - Nurse in Ponteland, England (UK)

I worked at Care UK full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pro-active in staff training for HCAs and to a degree for qualified staff. Qualified pay is reasonable.
Better overall than many of its competitors.

Cons

Qualified staff have to wear pink, which for most male nurses is not really appropriate.
Very poor at responding to complaints of harassment/bullying by Home Managers towards staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Care UK part-time

    Pros

    My manager of two years has been one of the best I've worked with. He has been supportive and accomodated new ideas. Most importantly he made staff feel important. I may have been lucky to have a great manager who has influenced me but I generallylike the management.

    Cons

    Some organisational practices can improve, although the company has started to improve practices. Recently, a few strict rules and procedures have been put in place that have made for some less convinientprocedures. However, nothig too alarming.

    I have been working at Care UK full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The staff are amazing, friendly and so helpful and mindful of each other.
    If you want to improve a process or activities with residents your opinion and ideas are always considered. You have your own voice.
    Training is regular and encouraged. If you wish to complete a qualification, Care UK will support you.

    Cons

    We are not paid for our breaks and do not have any enticing benefits.
    Sometimes it can take quite a while for new equipment to arrive once we have reported a fault.
    I would like to see more interaction with residents who are not as fortunate as others to have family visit them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see more interaction and activities carried out with residents who are not as fortunate as others to have family visit them regularly if at all.
