North Bristol Trust is a pleasant place to work in terms of your colleagues and the environment.
However, it has several tiers of management whose main jobs appear to be creating as much confusion as possible.

Middle management regularly upgraded on pay scale yet job specification unchanged.

Unfortunately during the past 4 years of working within the Brunel Building, I have learnt how poor the communication between the employees and management truly is. And this is a major issue particularly on the wards, so many frustrated staff who are willing to talk about their problems but never anyone to talk to who they feel they can trust and is willing to do anything about it to help change the circumstances (which most of the complaints I’ve heard are fixable) Management do not make time to get to know their employees and team which is a BIG problem, not enough praise towards the staff, continuous amounts of pressure instead. Really big shame because there is soo much potential in a lot of my colleagues and their lights are fading fast.

Expect to walk around 20,000+ steps per day.

Unmotivated colleagues.

Flexible hours if willing to work long shifts.

Endless amounts of pressure.

Expected to take on more than your role due to constant short staffing.

Too many management, too many different rules.

A lot of staff gossip and school like behaviour.

Great weekend, bank holiday and night shift rate.

Discounts on various restaurants.
Pros
Shifts are flexible, Opportunities to rotate around the hospital in various roles
Cons
Poor management, lack of common sense, lack of everyday equipment, a lot of walking

Like working on the buses as you got to meet lots of different people every day. You had to have a lot of patients due to traffic jams around the town. There was a very good working relationship with the staff and management it was like a family which was the most enjoyable part. the hardest was putting up with the traffic.
Pros
meeting people
Cons
split shifts

Daily I prepare clinic notes and information packs for upcoming clinics. I meet and greet patients as they arrive for appointments and ensure they fill in the correct paperwork before seeing a nurse or consultant.
For the administration side I ensure we have the medical records for each patient due to arrive, then trace them on the internal NBT system to us or to wherever they need to go after the clinic has finished, and make sure they are sent to the correct location. I also answer calls from both patients and staff to answer any questions, and make calls to other hospitals to request notes of obtain information requested by the medical staff about a patient.

I have learnt how to work well and efficiently under pressure and how to prioritise my workload.

Management is very good, with strong communication between the different bands.
My co-workers are extremely helpful, friendly and we all work well within a team, helping each other wherever we can.

The hardest part of my job is dealing with difficult patients, but with understanding, patience and kindness, difficult situations are usually quickly resolved. The most enjoyable part is being within the team, as there is a good dynamic and everyone gets on well.
Pros
Great team to work in. Can work in a new, modern hospital with many resources and amenities.
Cons
No parking for those without a permit, very short lunch break considering long hours.

People continue to leave due to management in the department being unable to organise staff and rotas constantly. People are promised progression and it is never seen. The staff that leave are a real loss to the hospital as they do a really good job. if the management could sort out their issues they would keep a really good team.

I had a very bitter experience working for North Bristol NHS Trust. I had to leave this company because I was un valued and isolated by so-called colleagues. Not a good place to work for me! Also management was very poor and incompetent.
Cons
Long hours, repetitive works, inadequate training, poor work culture
