A typical day would start off with a number of tasks that need to be done. It would end with exactly the same number of tasks outstanding due to managers wanting other things to tight deadlines, changing the goalposts, crises in clinical areas which require immediate action, mandatory meetings or training set up on your behalf by managers etc. Next day or so managers will ask why your tasks have not been done! Managers have little understanding or interest in what your role entails or what demands are being placed on you by others only in what they want you to do for them.
Consequently there is a widening gap between staff and managers. This is a shame as there used to be a more collaborative culture but it's almost like they don't care if people leave now. Most enjoyable thing is going home!
Close to home, nice colleagues, nice patients
Long hours unpaid, highly pressured, no recognition or progression, not nice patients
