Awful
Catering Assistant (Former Employee) –  Preston, Lancashire29 November 2018
Bad management that dont have any interest in staff or patients they are only there to pick up a pay cheque. the entire hospital is in desperate need of an upgrade. there is a common theme of allowing bad and verbally abusive workers to keep their jobs and good workers get ignored. nursing staff (typically the younger ones) are rude to both patients and other staff.
Pros
You get to leave
Cons
Everything from parking to working

I enjoyed the job very much and the team I worked with were committed, professional individuals. The work was hard but the self satisfaction rewards I got from my time there compensated for the long hours and poor pay.
Pros
Knowing that I was working in an area of excellence regarding life
Cons
Lack of resources in the NHS

Stressful
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Royal Preston30 September 2018
Middle and upper management haven't got a clue about ground floor shop workers. Too many audits, clipboards, admin, cleaning instead of nursing. Culture in engrained in staff to be plain miserable. It's just a job is the attitude now.
Poorly trained students thst do not care about their role. Some are rude, dis interested and this I feel is due to them not being paid. It's cheap labour! Not enough contact hours with patients.
NHS is finished
Pros
None
Cons
Poor money long hours lack of resources management

Terrible hospital to work at
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Preston, Lancashire20 July 2018
Staff are very rude and disrespectful, this is due to the pressures at the hospital. Managers and band 6 always looking down at everyone else as their think there are superior. Parking is non existent and the education for students is free labour. The students are treated very poorly and feel sorry for them.
Pros
None
Cons
Staff, mistreatment of students, parking, over expensive restaurant, old depressing hospital

Good job security.
A&E receptionist (Former Employee) –  Preston, Lancashire18 April 2018
It's very good working at Royal Preston Hospital. The hours can be long. The parking is terrible but the job security is good and there's always opportunities to work in the various departments around the site earning extra money.
Pros
Opportunities to work flexibly
Cons
Really difficult to park.

Do not work here worst place ever
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Theatres and wards12 November 2018
Very stressful if you want to have depression this is the place for you. Students are mistreated and made to do the dirty work in theatres and wards. Theatre students have appaling experiences with workload pressure of others put on them. The students are not happy with staff shortages and laziness of staff, replaced by students, the correct care is not given. No wonder there is a shortage of student nurses, cause of the appaling treatment by hospitals like this. Iam ashamed to have even worked for this hospital and will never return. Patients are mistreated, the scale of the hospital is too small for the amount of specialities the hospital has with no beds and lots of useless managers. Working hours are over 12 hours as standard. No work life balance and the stress will wish you never did nursing ever. Cant wait to leave such an appaling service. Car parking is even worse than london town centre you wont find a parking ever or your charged extortionate amounts. Staff morale is so low it is unbelievable. I would never let any of my family memberd be treated here after knowing what goes on.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Long hours, poor pay for the amount of work, staff shortages, mistreatment of students, car parking, management, stressful, no staff morale
