Undervalued
Clinical Support Worker (Current Employee) –  West Midlands14 November 2019
Undervalued, underpaid, over worked! Worked within the trust for 10 years and has slowly declined. No longer a health trust but now a business that clearly does not care!

Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Dudley14 September 2019
This is a very autocratic organisation, it also has a total disregard to the culture within its workforce, there is a lack of support in addressing issues within teams and an obvious blame culture. This hasn’t changed for many years and is archaic in its bureaucracy

Bullied and micro-managed. Do not work there.
Clerical (Former Employee) –  Dudley, West Midlands16 August 2018
This is a very sad place to work. It is such a shame that the very hardworking staff are bullied into submission by the completely inept management.

There is something very wrong with an organisation where staff are constantly bombarded with encouragement to whistle blow and yet anyone who does then disappears without explanation. The ability to speak of concerns should be implicit and should not require advertising.

Be warned, witch hunting and scapegoating is a daily pastime for management and applies to staff at all levels.
Pros
Comararderie despite culture of bullying
Cons
Disgraceful mis-management

Very stressful place to work. Understaffed with lots of overtime to fill the gaps. No job security at the moment. Good people being taken for granted.

A difficult job but satisfying
Medical Secretary (Former Employee) –  Dudley, ENG19 January 2014
I would start the day by answering my telephone messages and dealing with any requests from patients or internal customers. I would then prepare clinics if they were clinic days. I would then type during the morning following dealing with the opening of post. I would start to review my waiting lists during the afternoon and type any results letters to GP's and patients. Filing would take place during the afternoon as would any other duties required following opening the afternoon post.
I learned a lot about cancer and about surgery. I also learned to use a different hospital system and how to do theatre lists.
Management was not very helpful at this hospital and I found the other staff to be supportive but very disatisfied with the operation of the surgical department.
The hardest part of this job was the frustration at lack of money within the NHS and how this impacted on the patients and staff. People had to work very hard just to manage on a day to day basis and this was quite difficult.
The most enjoyable part of the job was when a patient contacted me to say they were very pleased and grateful for the outcome of their surgery. I very much enjoyed my contact with the patients.
Pros
Salary and the patients
Cons
Very very high level of responsibilty and the problems within the NHS due to funding
