PERMANENT - SENIOR IT SERVICE DEVELOPMENT ANALYST (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 8 April 2019
Having worked here for almost 10 years is testament to how great it is. As with any job there are its frustrating times and management disagreement but these are far and few between. If you get the chance to work here, go for it
Manager (Current Employee) – London, Greater London – 5 February 2019
Wonderful organisation to work for, surrounded by inspirational staff all working towards treating a patient. Each member of staff has a part to play in organising an appointment, an admission, treatment, referral and discharge of a patient.
Advanced Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – London – 22 January 2019
It doesn't matter how organised you are a curve ball invariably appears. 'Spinning Plates' springs to mind continuously having to manage multiple different expectations surrounded by ongoing bed pressures. Lots of wonderful great outcomes but also some very depressing ones.
Deputy Service Manager (Current Employee) – London Bridge Station, Greater London – 28 October 2018
Working hours 9-5pm you can come in with a plan but due to staff shortage plan can change and it’s about prioritising things. I’ve learned to deal with a diversity of people, being resilience and working under pressure. Sticking to deadlines, managing a large group of people. The work place culture is staff are stuck in their ways and find it difficult to adapt to changes. The hardest part of the job is making everyone believe in the same vision whilst there staff shortages capacity issue and other issues within the service. The most enjoyable part is the business of the role and the changes and challenges that come with it.
IG&M Business Support Officer (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 29 September 2018
It was tough working in the area I was in due to the management. I did get bullied by my boss and needed to leave because of this. The hospital itself has great courses and has a great IT team. Loved working with my peers and learnt a lot while working here.
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) – London Bridge Station – 26 September 2018
busy dispensary lovely staff very helpful. I learnt a lot in the short time I was there. The patients are always put first and sometimes you have to stay late which is fine if you know that the patient will get back home to their families
PA/Secretary, Paediatrics (Current Employee) – S E London – 9 August 2018
I really don't want to go into any detail here. I think they are all about the same - maybe SLAM, GOSH & UCL are worse! Since the slashing of the Council staffing the NHS are the main employers in this part of London!
good provision for carers leave
salaries are fixed - as with all NHS Trusts these days
Multiple Sclerosis Specialist Nurse (Former Employee) – London – 12 July 2018
I worked Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm, autonomously and independently with little supervision. There was no typical day. The day could vary from telephone consultations through out day. Visiting patients at home or see them in hospital or GP clinic. Attending multiple disciplinary team meetings. Carrying out telephone consultation with specialist consultants. Monitoring patient medication concordance and for potential side effects. Providing support and guidance to patient through a crisis of their condition. Preparing and presenting on studies for other health care professionals.
Participating in service development, draw up protocols, guidance lines and audits to determine the pathway, support high standard of care delivered to patients within the service.
Busy often missed lunch.
Often had to work over time to complete the necessary written documentation, or deal with patient crisis.
