Nurse Specialist (Former Employee) – PRUH – 11 December 2018
Good environment in which to work but so troubled by poor management that development and growth is poor. Short sighted people development, rather lose staff than work hard to keep them. Lots of meetings to discuss issues but little done about them. Top heavy management but no true leadership. Many lovely people working there. Transport network good, parking not so good but available, hospital shuttle between sights. Nice area, heavy population. Could be a really great hospital but neglected by the KCHUFT
Técnico em sala de operação (Former Employee) – Greater London – 25 January 2019
No departamento do hospital onde eu trabalhava éramos cerca de 45 funcionários entre: enfermeiros, doutores, auxiliares, cirurgiōes e gerência de 16 países diferentes. Uma verdadeira babilônia onde todos nós nos entendíamos. Aprendi muito sobre o quão forte o corpo humano pode ser, porem, não somos invencíveis. Fiz muitos amigos de vários cantos do planeta. Cuidei de muitos pacientes difícil, rir e chorei com eles. A cultura da empresa é boa, o ambiente de trabalho, as vezes, tenso era muito agradável. Mas depois de 16 anos resolvi deixar Londres. Por isso que sai.
Ophthalmic Healthcare Assistant (Current Employee) – London – 12 October 2018
Day to day - processing patients for doctors, assisting doctors with procedures Learned - Ophthalmic medicine and whats involved, plus a little bit about the eye in general. Teaching is extremely limited and you must seek it out as an individual if you wish to learn Management - Sufficient. Often chaotic in high pressure situations. Workplace culture - A small amount. The job is too busy to really develop this. Hardest part of job - the sheer quantity of patients coming through, and the lack of leadership in the department. Most enjoyable part - experience in operating theaters.
*Job advertised as £18,000 - £21,000 PA, this was false. I started on £16,000 and have increased to £17,000 after considerable effort.
Intensive Critical Care Nurse (Current Employee) – London – 18 August 2017
The hospital is a mayor complex of buildings, its huge. There are departments for every simple thing, many thousands of patientes are looked after in the wards every single day. Has the most advance medicine, innovative, modern and last advances in surgery and Intensive Critical Care. Very modern, very busy, quite overwhelming.
It can be fun to work there and some time it is not
Register Nurse (Current Employee) – Princess Royal University Hospital – 7 August 2017
Am just using the website for the first time so I don't know how effect is going to be. I was not happy in my old post after I came back from long time illness . So I can not really give true review at the moment.
Very nice Trust to work for, many benefits included
Dental & Ophthalmology Waiting List Co-Ordinator (Current Employee) – London, ENG – 17 April 2015
I work very long hours, most days are 6.30am-7pm. I enjoy working here, although it can be stressful sometimes, the staff and structure make it enjoyable to come to work each day. I enjoy managing my 2 separate teams, they both operate completely differently as one is for inpatients and the other is for outpatients.
Course Administrator (Current Employee) – Resuscitation Training Department, 1st Floor A&E – 17 December 2012
I have a lot of fun within the team that I work. We all get on very well, although I may not see them very often as they teach and I am office based, I know that I have their support should I need it. My typical day involves, checking my emails, sorting application forms, booking in staff for training, dealing with telephone queries. I have been attending a management course within the Trust, as my manager felt that this would a useful qualification to have. I am very supported by my manager and my team. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the constant stream of phone calls from prospective candidates. These phone calls can often be very difficult and sometimes slightly abusive. Luckily for me the support I have from my manager allows me to off-load to him and learn not to take any of it personally. The most enjoyable part of my job is when we are actually running these courses. It gives me a chance to meet the candidates that I have only spoken to by email and also I get to meet new faculty and catch up with previous faculty. It's very interesting meeting the candidates and new faculty, you get a chance to learn little bit about them and often they take the time to learn about me.
