Does Barchester Healthcare offer a yearly bonus?

Pros

Decent yearly bonus, opportunity to self study Health and Social Care.

Cons

Did not feel "homely" at all. Care standards are pretty low, moving and handling was atrocious. Disabled and incontinent residents would be got up first thing in the morning and would not be checked or repositioned until they were going to bed. Pressure sores and skin breaks left right and centre. Night staff would sleep through most of the night and just make sure they checked everyone in the morning so day staff wouldn't notice. Non-verbal residents would often not receive all required personal care as they 'couldn't complain'. It was a really difficult company to start care with - clique-y staff who would expect you to know what you were doing with no experience and gave very little help or direction, I found myself in disciplinary meetings when I had been asked to do things I'd never been shown, and instead of helping me when I asked staff expected me to 'use my initiative'. I've never felt more isolated in a job just for being new.

Advice to Management

Better training and support for new staff, not just telling staff what to do but explaining why it's being done and showing them exactly how. I didn't understand textured diets, peg feeds, changing catheter bags, or the correct way to reposition somebody - which are all things I did in this job - until I moved to a new company.

Does Barchester Healthcare offer bonus pay?

Pros

Not much, most of your colleagues are nice

Cons

Woefully understaffed, it’s in fact dangerous. The entire place looks fine at first glance, but when you just scrape the surface a little, it’s disgusting. Management not supportive, only interested in the bonus they get for not hiring agency staff, all on your back. Also, if you value your registration, give this place a wide berth. It’s not worth it.
