I gathered a vast amount of experience and knowledge throughout my 18 years of working at the hospital. I would definitely recommend working there as there is plenty of variety and lots of courses to keep you up to date with things.
I enjoyed my time there.

I decided to retire early as I felt I had done as much as I could in that role.

I am now looking for part time roles.

Great Place to work.
IT Team camaraderie within the Team I worked with, to get issues, projects completed and socializing.

Able to learn new technologies and share my experience with the Team.

Feeling of giving back to the End Users, when IT systems are working again.

IT Management needs to be re-aligned \ reviewed.

IT structure needs an overhaul to increase efficiency.

Good environment but I think they should find way to change the working environment in summer time. The uniform looks good but during summer time staff suffer a lot, I think the should provide summer uniform.

KHFT is a wonderful place to work. A beautiful and clean hospital with friendly staff. The only reason I want to leave is for personal career progression which unfortunately I don't get with my current job role.

Working at Kingston Hospital was a pleasure. Although the hours were long and demanding the friendly staff and patients make it worthwhile. The canteen offers a variety of foods catering for both vegetarian and non vegetarian people.
Pros
staff car parking
Cons
Not everyone can get a staff parking permit. There is a waiting list.

The management is very poor and you will be expected to wear yourself to the ground for very little pay. However I did stay for over 6 years and I can only assume that was because of the lovely people I worked with and the security the job brought me
Pros
Security
Cons
Poor management with little care or knowledge
