Great trust values but Head of this department doesn't care about staff.
Health Visitor (Current Employee) –  Southwark borough17 February 2019
I work in a community team where some of the colleagues are loud, confrontational, hateful and hate peace.

The physical environment is also awful. The roof leaks badly. When it rains the water comes down and buckets and pails have to be strategically placed. There are ceiling tiles that are missing.

The trust has moved towards hot desking.
Head of nursing is only interested in keeping her banding and her job.

I feel like I don't belong. Can't wait to leave!
Pros
Large Trust. Good number of jobs. More choice in moving jobs.
Cons
Hot desking. Too many changes in a short space of time and effect on staff not taken into account.

Inspirational
Manager (Current Employee) –  London, Greater London5 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.

Totally Unpredictable
Advanced Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) –  London22 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.

Work
Deputy Service Manager (Current Employee) –  London Bridge Station, Greater London28 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.
Pros
Cinema
Cons
Staff turnover

Love the hospital
IG&M Business Support Officer (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London29 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.

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

I think they are all about the same
PA/Secretary, Paediatrics (Current Employee) –  S E London9 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!
Pros
good provision for carers leave
Cons
salaries are fixed - as with all NHS Trusts these days
