Laboratory Assistant (Former Employee) – Plymouth – 20 September 2018
Overall it's a great place to work. Unfortunately for me it was ruined by a few people who joined and seemed to turn the atmosphere a bit sour. So many restraints on management methods that their hands were tied to the point where they actually felt useless as they weren't able to deal with problems appropriately.
Shame as the job itself wasn't that bad, pay was adequate and job security was very good.
PA and Secretarial Manager (Current Employee) – Brighton, East Sussex – 29 August 2018
I have always enjoyed working for the NHS, even in administration as you are assisting and helping patients in times of need. A great work culture, fantastic colleagues and everyone focuses on the patients.
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.
Good benefits and pension, motivated and dedicated workforce
The team I work with are second to none. Everyone I work with are 100% dedicated to the work we do and are passionate about recovery and well being. I have been truly humbled working with such a great team
Administration and Healthcare Assistant (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 23 August 2018
Working within the NHS can be very hard work, yet rewarding. been able to tend to needs of others, was could for me i wads able to meet new people l, learn a lot about myself and my own skills. i since built on these within the other areas of the NHS and want to continue to do so, however, some o f the systems that are now in place does not allow all bank workers of certain band grades to upgrade their skills for free or within their personal financial budget wise. and that is a shame and as to why a lot of bank and other senior nurses are leaving the NHS.
Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – Pennine – 22 August 2018
Dynamic environment and high pressured but great team spirit. Highly demanding but highly rewarding if you are on a supportive team.
I felt I had support from my colleagues although at times difficult for management to always realise the reality of the pressures the team were under. Slightly unrealistic expectations of what could be achieved within the time frames.
Scanning Clerk (Current Employee) – Bristol – 20 August 2018
I found that within the department i am working the staff although friendly are not inclusive, I feel very much as if I am the hired help. The manager is supportive and will deal with issues, The work is repetitive and it can be boring. I self taught myself the EDMS and Lorenzo programs as there was no training, the staff are friendly and the other temporary staff are very approachable.
