I like many are passionate about working for the NHS but this often is challenged by the internal politics, personalities and poor management styles and accountability.
My career was the most exciting part of my life apart from my private family life, I adhered what I did and it was achieving the desired outcomes for our patients that gave the best rewards.
Local Authority funding cuts are killing the services that are there to provide the local populations with the best public health and clinical health outcomes.
Unfortunately, leadership within the service at all levels is lacking and management skills and ability is somewhat responsible.
Very saddened by the gradual decline of service delivery, quality and care. The hardest part of the job, was dealing with the personalities, politics and workplace harassment and bullying which was rife in all teams and at all levels.
