Fast paced, patient focused, team work, customer service
Working at the hospital in a busy, fast paced department makes my typical day satisfying, knowing that I am there to assist everyone that comes to the reception desk whether it be for directions, to escorting to wards/departments, or just talking to lonely people who just want to have a chat

Lovely Team
I enjoyed my time working at the hospital, it can be stressful at times, but it makes it more enjoyable.
Friendly people, can at times be hard working in a small office.

Needed work
Within my positions at MKUH my work/life balance was very poor and ended up with me being ill. Under new management I am aware the issues I had have been resolved and are great places to work for.
Pros
good maternity
Cons
poor work life balance

Job Culture
Too many suits just waiting for their pensions.
Very clicky amongst the suits, who negatively dominate the nursing/caring staff, in their bid to cut budgets and bring on their own career advancement. This impacts the morale and wellbeing of nursing/caring staff who do their best not to let it impact the patients.
Get rid of the suited cling ons!

Secure job
Days are never the same and always busy. Often no time even for a coffee. Love liaising with patients and helping them with their difficulties and problems. The hardest part is juggling conflicting priorities and constant interruptions.
Pros
security
Cons
Management's unrealistic expectations
