Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire23 April 2018
No two days the same. As a completely new starter in the NHS I learned a whole new language both long hand and abbreviations. The staff were friendly and helpful and very supportive and the management team did their best to make sure we all worked together to get the work done right first time within the deadlines. As an NHS workplace the culture was healthcare based with lots of emphasis on what was happening in and around the City and what staff could do to support each other and the Community whether it be sponsorship or baking cakes to raise funds for charity events.
Difficult part of the job was often dealing with patient/colleague complaints/concerns.
Most enjoyable part of the job - getting the right outcome for the patient/colleague for their complaint/concern.
Pros
short commute
Cons
never enough staff

Rewarding workplace
Clerical Officer (Current Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire26 December 2017
On a daily basis I answer the phones, receiving referrals and booking appointments for patients.
You learn the bespoke systems used within the NHS and the importance of data protection.
Strong management who are considerate of their employees.
Hardest part of the job is the low salary for agency employees, most enjoyable part is the rewarding nature of helping patients.

Easy but boring repetative roles that can become mind numbing.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire14 December 2017
Very poor starting wage, bone idle management who have the attitude that if you don't like it leave. Constantly trying to run what is in effect a business on an absolute shoestring. EVERYTHING is run down, repaired, broken ,repaired again breaks and so on. The staff themselves feel really undervalued and demoralised. However they mostly do their best. Leave entitlement is good. ( if you can take it due to staff shortages).
Pros
Good annual leave
Cons
frustrating in every aspect.

Stressful
Apprentice Clinical Support Worker (Current Employee) –  Leeds9 October 2017
I can say that it wasn't completely the NHS's fault that I don't enjoy the experience that I've had with working with them, it was also down to learn direct too. The training was fine, just could have had more and had more help on and off the ward. Would have also like to have been shown some gratitude for the hard work we do, unlike being treated unfairly.
Pros
sometimes being thanked
Cons
long hours, shortage of staff, being injured/attacked

Good place to work, if work well with others
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire13 September 2017
Work hard as part of a team and you can have a rewarding career. I worked as a nurse for 34 years, I had a varied career and enjoyed most of it. I worked (at the end) in Mental Health. This was amazing and defenetly the best part of my career. Seeing very ill people improving so their quality of life was so much better is an incredible feeling. On the other side of the coin, supporting people, and their families, whose improvment was limited, is good when you know the best has been done for them and they are as comfortable as possible. There is no feeling better when people, needlesly, express their gratitude and say what a difference has been made to them.
Pros
Team work. Meeting some amazing people, patients, their carers and staff, who despite everything, are pasionette about their work.
Cons
Staff shortages

Good place of work, a very rewarding job. But you do need good honest hard working team for best results
Ward Administrator (Current Employee) –  Leeds, West Yorkshire19 June 2017
It all depends on the team and how they work,
wether that is including you or without you.
The post itself is very enjoyable and variable.
Sometimes you can be asked to do tasks outside of your banding and you can also be told you must do these if your manager is not able to manage your team correctly and there is favouritism shown also.
Pros
The day gors teally quick, it is flexible. Get to pick lunch time.
Cons
Must manage time or you will always work over and i dont get paid for that.
