Cultural Issues but Worthwhile
Clinical Laboratory Manager (Current Employee) –  Inverness28 August 2018
A typical day at work involves a lot of paperwork, political navigation and HR issues however at the end of the day patients benefit from the work done which is satisfying like no other job. Hardest part: stopping yourself from becoming jaded.
Pros
Good benefits and pension, motivated and dedicated workforce
Cons
Bureaucracy

NHS is not the service it used to be
Administrator (Current Employee) –  NHS Borders13 August 2018
Due to financial restraints working within the health service is not what it used to be. More money requires to be spent on the 'shop floor' and less on hierarchy.

Underpaid and overworked
Bank Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) –  Inverness5 August 2018
Although working in Raigmore hospital is at times very fulfilling and satisfying.Especially with regards the patients you assist or the staff that you meet. The overall stress for what the nursing auxiliaries have to do,or are expected to do, is just not worth the hourly rate that you get. You are not only doing the work of a nursing auxiliary. You are doing the work of a domestic and the work of those auxiliary nurses that get paid a higher band than you.
Pros
Nice staff
Cons
Long hours within a very stressful environment.
