A successful introduction to NHS operations
I worked as bank staff for a 3 month period with the NHS to update records and appointment letters. During this time I learnt to use System One, a system which appeared challenging at first but became easier with time.

Daily I would process over 150 documents for different patients, with the documents varying in type from evidence of birth to appointment letters for maternal pre-natal milestones and then baby growth milestones at various stages. Whilst some tasks were tedious and repetitive, the job gave me opportunity to familiarize myself with data-protection protocol and handling of high level documents.


The job was solely office based but with other members of the team, in higher roles, leaving on visits and tending to appointments.

White English supremacy strong. In most areas.
Demeaning and bullying of BAME people especially those coming to do agency work Reporting not helping because of perpetrators ganging up. Poor leadership because of little knowledge of candidates

Very poor
prospects and advancement only apply if your in the right department these are very few.
Cleaning staff are paid more for unskilled work than skilled staff

Skilled staff are restricted in there band 2 roles with no sign of training or advancement

Poor leadership or lack of leadership

lack of support for new staff

Unorganised and dysfunctional

no accredited training Offered

Inequality across the trust

No time given for training

All training that is given is evasive and poorly delivered

Overall I would not recommend to work here

You will be made to feel under valued unimportant and low .

The majority of band 2 and 3 staff are exploited on a daily basis

Very poor work ethos .

Productive and Fun
Busy but enjoyable work place! Very friendly environment to work in. Can be extremely fast paced so must be able to cope with the demand. Must be comfortable using PCs and IT software.

volunteer work so unfair to review as not paid work
volunteer work so unfair to review as not paid work and work to my own hours - i cannot comment on workplace culture as i am based at home. the most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that i have done something worthwhile with my day

Rewarding
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.

Love my job
Love working for NHS, but unfortunately minimum wage does not pay the bills if you are single and have no one else contributing.
The job is great as are the people including the GP’s I work for, but it is not a financially viable position.

Very low paid job
I love my job being able to help the public some times you get a good team to work with the pension is good you pay for your parking sadly you dont get a full break sadly you wont get the support you need from line managers or anyone else come to that and if you get assaulted by a agency nurse like I did dont be surprised as it will get brushed under the carpet. But good luck andenjoy

Hardworking environment, relaxed culture. Usually working on your own initiative. I have learned to be resilient to criticism from management. The hardest part of the job can sometimes be management and if you're lucky a great team to work with. Generally colleagues are lovely
Pros
Always in Work

Very Good
I worked on Bank for the NHS for several months as an admin and thoroughly enjoyed the environment I worked in, all management were helpful and respectful, and my colleagues were all keen on working together to achieve any goals and overcome challenges. The job itself wasn’t extremely challenging but required guidance at first as you are taught how to use the system which you are taught how to do during your work hours

Appointment coordinator
It's good working for NHS you can develop in the trust and if you willing to work hard you can progress and it's very flexible. You must be a quick learner.

Busy and demanding but interesting
Fast paced and busy but frequently short staffed which can impact upon care provision and safety. Work is interesting and varied and you do feel valued and appreciated by the patients.
Pros
Great team work
Cons
