My employer doesn't make me feel included and valued as I'm "only a Band 5". There is a real rich-poor divide in our team, where you need to be at least a Band 7 to be taken notice of. I've mainly worked in the private sector, which is more of a meritocracy and a good idea is a good idea, never mind whether an employee is the office cleaner or a director.

Many senior doctors joined the NHS to serve the population and to have long term predictable finances rather than to receive a large income. In the past the goodwill generated by this ethos meant that both senior hospital consultants and GPs would undertake extra work happily when needed in return for a small amount of additional pay.

As a Carer of thirty years, it is important to understand that 'integration' i.e. ICS are fully aware of Carers involvement in the process of the Health & Social Care of our involvement, and we are recognised and included in the conversation. It is impossible to put together a 'Care Plan' without first knowing what help and support we provide, particularly 'out of hours'. The DOH 'Supporting Carers' 'Carers Action Plan 2018-2020 should be read in full by those AGENCIES responsible for...

This may perhaps not necessarily be the best place to ask, however I do not see any suitable means for asking, but it does fall under feeling included: would it be possible for Talk Health and Care to set up an area for receiving general suggestions on ways to improve both the NHS and government services? I have a great many ideas on ways to possibly improve the NHS (one of which is arguably win-win), however there aren't any current challenges or categories of which I can post my ideas...

Our team works remotely a lot of the time. This is very helpful for me as i have a disability. We try to be at the office at least once a week. However, having made the journey into work, I can sometimes go the whole day without a word from our manager and while working remotely I could go a whole week without any contact. It feels like this is only happening to me as the manager will have numerous conversations with colleagues while at the office, and skype calls while working remotely. I...

Prevent NHS organisations transferring their staff into wholly owned subsidiary companies. This removes staff from NHS terms and conditions, creating a two tier work force and does a lot of damage to staff morale. Often the staff transferred are away from the clinical front line making them less visible, but they have essential skills (e.g. critical care technicians and IT) which will be needed to take the NHS forward, deliver the long term plan and implement recommendations from the Tolpol...

For all home care workers to feel valued and included , Local authority commissioning must change. As providers we works tirelessly in valuing our staff but if the terms and conditions arent right , its a constant uphill battle. I have been in the industry for over 20 years (as a care worker , manager ) and the same practice has continued which is very demoralising for everyone working with local authorities. No wonder care worker turnover figures are as high as 38%.  Local authority...

In all places of work it is important for team members to feel valued within their role. We all like reassurance to some extent that the daily responsibilities we carry out are appreciated within our team and that our opinion and voice matters. This of course applies to working in care. Care workers want to feel valued and trusted not only in the care and support they provide to people, but they also want to be listened to when it comes to making decisions within the care setting that will...

"Cost repels care" Why do the Government find it so impossible to simply redirect the financial resources that appear to be available to fund private 'care' companies profit margins to please their shareholders, instead of the Carers who would prefer to provide loving tender expert care to the members of their families who have long-term chronic illnesses? I suggest that compassion and care that are meted out by family members is subjective, so it can not and will not be valued as a valid...
