Housekeeper/Cleaner (Former Employee) –  Southmead, Bristol11 May 2018
Meet many different people and learn many new skills. There is a wide variety of jobs available and everyone is very welcoming and polite. The hardest part of the job is thinking you have not done enough to help someone.

Staff Nurse (Current Employee) –  Essex9 May 2018
It can be challenging place but rewarding at the same time. There are relative good training opportunities but can be waiting a long time to progress. The skills required for the salary unfortunately is not enough and departments always seem short of staff. I have learned a lot in my time working for this organisation but hope the future will get better. It has become undervalued unfortunately.
Pros
Sickness policy and pension scheme
Cons
Shortage of staff

Hard work but very rewarding
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Amersham, Buckinghamshire8 May 2018
A 7 hour shift with half an hour break. You are advised to split the half an hour into 15 minute chunks. You are lucky if you get a bathroom break, you're that busy. Lots of ward walking, you need the most comfortable and supportive shoes you can find! You also need a strong stomach and bladder!
Staff at all levels are very supportive and patient. Training at induction and on the job. You learn very fast. Not for the unfit!
Hardest part of the job watching a patient fade away. Very humbling to be called an angel by people you are caring for.
Pros
Job satisfaction
Cons
When you need to go and you can't...

Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) –  Somerset3 May 2018
a typical day in the NHS is very hardworking but fun at the same time.
i have learned many new skills including venapuncture and cannulation
management in the NHS can be good or bad.
the hardest part of the job is the stress of the winter pressures and illnesses which leads to lack of beds and staff
the most enjoyable part of the job is working with some really dedicated and compassionate people
Pros
very rewarding
Cons
long hours and tiring days

Staff are not treat equally long hours with challenging individuals with no support.
