Job Culture
Poor Management and a lot of duplications
Senior Information Analyst (Former Employee) –  Banstead, Surrey8 March 2017
I found the culture to be very poor in comparison to other places where I have been previously. Staff members regularly undermined and there was always a fall guy for institutional errors.

The service suffered as a result.

999 Call Handler (Current Employee) –  Lewes28 January 2017
Good support from managers at an EOC level, and colleagues all understanding and everyone works well together. Never know what's going to happen next, and lots of different roles to branch out to within the service. Somethings are poorly managed but overall ok.

You receive your daily work the previous evening and work through the appointments hopefully making the journeys as relaxed as possible. Occasionally the patients illnesses were a bit difficult to deal with.

Patient Experience Officer (Former Employee) –  Lewes24 April 2016
Supportive management and great camaraderie within the workplace. I learnt a lot about how the NHS service works in respect of the ambulance and NHS 111 service, and feel I have a greater understanding now because of my time spent there.
