Helpline Advisor (GP Hotline) (Former Employee) –  Glasgow4 November 2017
Busy with a large volume of incoming phone calls. I improved my medical terminology training. Management is amazing threw dinner party for the 10th year anniversary withing the premises. Management is really amazing in feedback and training. I do not consider the salary too good...Hardest part of the job is the gap of between hospitals and the call center in providing customer service. The most enjoyable part of the job are the friendly colleagues.
Pros
Friendly environment
Cons
salary not good enough targets way too high

Awful
Senior Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Cheadle, Cheshire22 October 2017
Awful management in some areas unhelpful and out dated leadership very difficult to be part of a team that has been stagnated since the hospital was built.

Certainly didn't want to see staff develop very clicky in some areas also I encountered some unfriendly staff with views that male staff shouldn't work there.
Pros
Close to home
Cons
Very difficult to be part of the team

Dead end job
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Sussex21 October 2017
A recent review of administration roles has made staff feel very undervalued. Avoid this place. Workload is unmanageable and unrealistic. No matter how glossy the advert is, this place is dreadful to work for. Mangers just do not have an idea in what is going on and communication is very bad.
Ok to work for, if you just want a dead end job for a little money. Do not apply if you want career development or want to make a difference.
Pros
Great colleagues
Cons
Poor management

Manager (Former Employee) –  London10 October 2017
Very reactive and vindictive place to work. There is a widespread culture of bullying and harassment if you don't "fit in " impossible to make positive changes which is very depressing

Underpaid and under valued
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) –  Bolton, Greater Manchester1 September 2017
Was very disillusioned with private sector and management who were more interested in profits than staff. No work/life balance working 10 hour days to just keep on top of the job, unmanageable and totally underpaid for the work expected of you. Team leader was crass and unprofessional, who couldn't lead a horse to water. Systems were slow and very outdated for a hospital. No formal training and no induction even after 6 months of work. Staff moral extremely low. Working with all departments was enjoyable and there were some really lovely people who had been there so long that they just put up with it. Such a shame that management can't get a grip on reality there and deal with the issues at hand.
Pros
Local to home.
Cons
No investment from company for proper systems and staff.

Helpline Advisor (Current Employee) –  Glasgow23 August 2017
If you're looking for an enjoyable experience, stay away from this job. Constant changes in the work place, limited to 5 mins a day for toilet breaks, Pulled up constantly for not hitting targets, thrown out of busy time without any notice, and no praise at all when facing a difficult day's work. Used to be a decent place to work but since recently taken over by new management, it's became a prison.
Pros
As they can't afford to have people leave, the jobs pretty much permenant if you want it to be
Cons
Terrible salary, staff taken for granted

Patient hostess (Former Employee) –  Cheksfield hospital4 August 2017
Excellent place to have worked! Loved my job with BMI I was sad to leave but my mum needed my care more back in 1999
The company were extremely understanding and held my job open for me! But because I was also pregnant I was unable to go back because I had no childcare options! Then as the 2 children I had were very young
Pros
Good shifts and meals provided
Cons
Long walk to work

Dreadful place
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Sussex12 July 2017
Dreadful place to work.
Management not interested in anything other than profit.
Line mgr only finds you for a telling off, no praise given when a difficult day has happened.
The more you give, the more is put upon you.
Would not work here if I had a choice.
Cons
Long unplanned hours

Customer Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Sheffield5 July 2017
Low moral. Lacking in team effort. Middle management needs work, upper management great. Great place to make friends but daily life is boring and no room for progression.

Bank staff always get cancelled last minute
Healthcare Assistant (Bank) (Former Employee) –  Midland30 June 2017
Whilst at first this seemed like a good job where on average I would get 20-30hrs a week work, this fluctuated due to management not liking the statistics of having bank staff. This left staff very stretched at all times, so unable to deliver the service necessary.
Otherwise the staff and the patients create a lovely working environment, and if care is a passion of yours this is very important.
The hardest part of the job was the added pressure put on you by an increasing wok load with minimum staffing levels.

As bank staff you are aware you are on a zero hr contract, howver to be let down the day before (or even sometimes when you had already arrived for work) is unacceptable.

If the company wants to continue succeeding they need to support staff and put patients at the front line of decision making.

do not work here
Ward Clerk (Former Employee) –  Surrey23 June 2017
Understaffed. Lazy rn staff who cannot be dismissed as needed. A lot of nursing staff who are not really suitable to be in role will be given a job.. lower wages . Staff are promoted quickly to fill gaps. Managers hide away never seen except at lunchtime. Wages constantly wrong. If your not nursing staff treated like bad smell
Low morale.low wages. Cosmetically worn and patched. Especially when a visit is due cqc then extra staff put on.
Pros
a carpark
Cons
too many to mention. run away
