Senior Nurse (Former Employee) – North east England – 3 October 2017
This is a company come across very well and seem to have a fantastic reputation from an outsiders perspective, it is not until you actually work there that you get to realise that the management is a shambles! The amount this company covers up and some of the unsafe practices and bullying behaviours that they turn a blind eye to is ridiculous, the patients get amazing care from the hands on nursing team but are sadly let down by the management who are obsessed with budgets and how their expenditure affects personal end of year bonus' s. All higher management say the right things at the right time but their actions do not back up their promises and apparent concerns. There is absolute corruption and bribery at higher levels which needs looking into.
Jack of All Trades (Current Employee) – South East Region – 5 February 2017
The pay is decent, however, benefit costs are insanely high, undermining the decent pay. Management is horrid. Too many "hands in the pot". Middle management needs to get scaled back significantly. They're selfish and not understanding of work life balance. Constantly pushing rediculious "projects". Since overtime is strictly prohibited, work unable to be completed is expected to be done on your own time. Expected to complete work that doesn't apply to your job title, ie. Admins doing RN documentation, RN doing social worker responsibilities, etc. The entire region is short staffed, but it doesn't matter. If you care about patients, don't bother applying, since management priority lies with the best paying insurance company. Commercial insurance is life! I would suggest Fresenius as a good place to work in a temporary fix, however don't waste you life in the long term, eventually the stress will send you looking elsewhere.
Systems Technician (Former Employee) – Addenbrookes Hospital – 14 June 2016
I worked as a System Technician covering Addenbrookes dialysis Unit & its home patients and also Addenbrookes satellite units in the east Anglian region servicing, repairing, basic maintenance of dialysis machines and associated equipment. learned that being in a company you could get called at short notice to do other work at short notice. The management were okay but always asking you do extra work outside of the contact.My co workers were good I think although I did not get chance to work alongside most of them. The hardest part of the job was the driving long distances.Which was frustrating at times.Most enjoyable part of the job was going to the home patients.
Staying at Hotels before service Meetings-paid for by company
long hours. Asked to do outside of my contract on a regular Basis.

I will obtain any blood specimens that is required and ensure that all results are checked and acted upon (these results I will find on the computer system that we use within the unit. I have had to learn re: what are normal blood results/abnormal results and how to act on these and whom to. I take charge of the unit at times and I have learnt a great deal from this, confidence, responsibility and accountability. We have a good team and support each other at all times. Giving time to all the team members to communicate their feelings from the days events to prevent stress in the workplace. The hardest part of the job is 'time' (ensuring that the day runs smoothly and ensuring that when it doesn't how to deal with it which really is not hard to do).
