Housekeeper/Suppercook. (Former Employee) – Chard – 16 March 2018
You start the day/evening shift running, I learnt that you had to prioritise jobs,if management required something done,you stopped whatever you were doing,and went back to it. The hardest part of the job was staff shortages. The most enjoyable part of the job was the patients and other members of staff.

Health Advisor (Current Employee) – Dudley – 12 March 2018
NHS 111 service is a great group. The management are very understanding and supportive and you get a lot of training and learn a lot of knowledge with health.

Management lack the skills needed in order to manage their staff's behaviour and attitude towards newcomers which is openly hostile.

This enabled bullying to be carried out quite openly and subsequently covered up by family members including management as they were reliant on these individuals to carry out their workload.

Band 6 Specialist Clinical Technologist (Current Employee) – Glasgow – 4 March 2018
The NHS performs fantastically well every year, despite severe cutbacks and lack of funding. Media coverage tends to focus on the negatives and this no doubt has a sway on public opinion unfortunately.
