    The management are appalling. Keep staff out of the loop. No idea what's going on. You learn alot about a company in hard times and you learn they do not value staff. Redeployment of staff against there wishes The company is a private company and all they are fixated are is money. They pay good working staff peanuts. No care in caretech we are missing the ££ sign as that's all they think about, how to con comissionors and families for bad quality care. Staff are overworked and tired.
