Nice place to work but management was not very good! Most top management place were taken by privately contracted consultants who you never saw as they were just employed to balance figures.

a typical work would involve working in a team scheduling patients for treatment. Dealing with queries over the phone and in person, liaising with radiographers and consultants.
Inputting data into spreadsheets and internal software's.

The team i worked with were very helpful and if i had questions or needed extra time or help they're were always willing to help.

the management were always at hand if i needed to discuss anything or needed anything to make my work life more easier.

the hardest part of my job was leaving my friends.

i enjoyed working with a great team only working 4 days a week, through the week the staff room would be full of snacks :)

I worked in the trust for 2 years and would work additional hours often covering weekend shifts at short notice with no recognition or thanks from management.
Bullying culture with limited supervision, opportunities for appraisal and felt undervalued.

On my last day didn’t receive any recognition or thanks for my work and glad that I have now left.often going the extra mile.

Glad I have left.

I was employed to assist the Medical Director to deal with Medical ER issues. On arrival there was little communication between Divisional HR staff and the Director. Once this problem was solved the HR Business Partners were able to seal with all Medical HR issues
Pros
Medical Staff Common Room
Cons
No office no desk

Oxford University Hospital is based in Oxford and usually take Park and Ride to get to Hospital. Not much parking available on site unless you get there really early.

I feel forced to stay heating the chair while there's nothing to do the most of the time, it's boring and this is because the management is not so good. Some people are lazy and this is not productive at all, I also feel they waste our taxes on monkey business.

I'm a new member of staff, I have been here six weeks and I've just received my second parking ticket. I've been on the waiting list for a permit, but I was 165th on that list when I applied. I now have no choice but to pay £7 a day to park in the public car park. Unless you get to work around 7am you'll never find a space.

This is how they treat new members of staff and they wonder why they can't keep hold of staff.
Cons
Parking

OUH is a strange place to work for.

On the face of it there is loads of talk about values, lots of positive emails.


Underneath it is a culture that grinds you down. If you are good at your job, you will have more and more work shoved onto you. You will end up doing two or three different jobs.


If you ever make a minor mistake because you are trying to do three jobs at once expect to be thrown under the bus.


Your manager will not thank you for this. In fact, last week I got a Whatsapp message saying "Where are my bloody xxxxxx". The reason for it was because I hadn't come in on my day off, without pay, to do something that wasn't my job but that I'd agreed to do if I had time.


Meanwhile if you are sensible enough to do the minimum possible, you will probably get promoted because you haven't done anything wrong, and have plenty of time to sit around drinking coffee with your manager.


As other reviews have said, it is very routine to see people in tears because of this pressure. The sickening thing for me is to see the "coffee" members of staff openly gossiping about this with manager next day. Presumably on your days off they are gossiping about the mistakes you made.


In the end, I ended up emailing the matron because of these issues, not least because I was off work with a serious illness and the "return to work" was my manager telling me in a corridor that she had done my return to work for me. No need to ask whether you feel better, just get back to work.


I'm sure there are better departments to work in but my current one my colleagues are lovely. The

Pros
Interesting jobs, flexible NHSP overtime

No recognition, managers don't care about you or your health
