Working in a hospital environmental is stressful and there is pressure to get things done in a certain amount of time, but it is also very rewarding. The management are lovely but the higher management expect too much and the rules are too strict regarding sickness and work injuries.
Set hours, talking to patients
Busy, pressuring and working weekends. Not great sickness policies
A typical day at work for me is to do a tea trolley round, morning and afternoon. This allows all of the other staff to do their main work. I've learnt a lot on the ward/department I'm in and it's brought my colours out from within myself. Hardest part of the job is hearing someone you have worked with has died for me personally.
Working within a team, caring, ambitious and lovely challenges
never seem to do the job applied for. several e mails and requests , something put in place but back doing same old stuff after 2 weeks. cant blame our line managers, the problem comes much higher up, someone leaves , don't get replaced and everyone else absorbs the duties
Theatres is a challenging environment, fast paced and you if you have a shift were you have a cooperative team and are not involved in politics, it is rewarding. However, most days, team work does not happen, and it can be quiet frustrating, and always the same ones being overstretched. The face fitting culture, the management style (intimidation/retaliation) and the well known NHS pressures are a nice cocktail for low morale and the "I don't care" attitude, with a high turn over of staff. If the face fits, you will have a chance for development and progression, otherwise make sure you are a member of a trade union!
Management stuck in its ways and don't dare to recommend change. If your face fits maybe you have a chance. Extremely clicky and you better socially invite management if you want a raise.
No change, awefull staff, their way or the highway, high staff turn over due to existing staff
Friendly working atmosphere, with great people. But frustration is the order of the day. It's impossible to bring about change. Always firefighting, and never being able to make a difference.
Terminally stuck in its ways
I currently volunteer at GWH. Whilst I love what I do as a volunteer the things I am allowed to do is limited. Lovely staff always make me feel very welcome and will miss being there when I eventually move into future employment.
friendly, hardworking staff.
limited to jobs being a volunteer
Hard work, quick turn over of patients, skills are able to be achieved and gain knowledge by applying for extra courses. good management, there could be extra support from Colleagues. Hardest part of the job feeling like your not being supported and all jobs being handed down to healthcare assistants. Most enjoyable part of the job is building professional trusting relationships with patients, watching them improve and get better and very rewarding.
meeting a variety of people
Long hours, short breaks.
