Our day started when we met at our base to load our lorry with all the equipment needed for the donor session and we would then drive to our location in all parts of the south east.
We had great opportunities to advance within the NHS and I personally took advantage of everything that was offered to me.

We worked as part of a really great and mostly supportive team, our day was spent happily with most of us being good friends and even after five years after retirement from the service we still meet for lunch every few months.

The hardest part of the job was the long hours sometimes being away from home for 12 plus hours.
Pros
Team work and advancement
Cons
Long hours

i love my job as a healthcare assistant but ive tryed to advance my career they score interviews but i just cant get that next band always some excuse from just 1 point short or someone from that ward got it. i personally think that its a age thing to be honest . the hours are terrible as we do days and nights in the same week and that takes some getting over not enough time to recover from your shifts either
Cons
long hours and shifts

Avoid working at the St Aubyns centre! They’re all bullies! They have a clique going on so you will never feel part of their team. Horrible place!!!!!
Pros

Cons
Management are bullies especially band 6’s and 7’s

It’s a great place to work you have to have a fast right, you have to learn on the job.
It’s a stable job but you will have a good community to work with

Very busy clinic area. No two days are the same. Many skills used and learnt. It's a work in progress environment. Very multi cultural. Sometimes with language barriers that need overcoming.
Very supportive staff team.
Pros
Very variable working days. Supportive staff team. Training and new skills are encouraged.
Cons
Sometimes feels like there arenot enough hours in the day to achieve all you want to achieve.

I love my job & what I did but there is lots of room for improvement!

Pay needs looking into.

Management need to spend more time on wards.

Patients need to be listened to.

Doctors need more dementia training.

Ok to work for, however more of a medical approach which is understandable, with limited acceptance of social interventions and benefit to mental health.

I grew a lot as a person working for the NHS. It was a privilege to care for those in need and to work with such an amazing team. Interacting with new people and getting an insight into many people's lives was the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part of the job was seeing patient's who were acutely confused or in pain and often feeling helpless as to how to help them.

Working for the NHS is incredibly rewarding but very challenging. Most colleagues are great fun and a pleasure to work with. however, there is definitely an aspect of hierarchy discrimination.
