A difficult job but satisfying
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
