They don’t take time or have time to train you properly and expect you to know how to work systems without being trained. Each department passes the buck saying it’s not their responsibility to train you.
Pros
Car parking free of charge
Cons
Selfish staff with no consideration for newcomers

Don't waste your time applying for jobs at the RNOH , only people who are friends / family get the jobs or somebody else who is already in the role and it's being made permanent

Management can make your life a misery. What used to be a fantastic place to work in is no longer. Just remember you're replaceable. Sad very sad. Just watch your back.

busy day and good opportunities for training if you need or want it. Flexible working available for those who want to work earlier or later start. Parking is a nightmare. After 8.30am its virtually impossible to park but it is free!

I was given an opportunity to develop my career by attending courses and being given an opportunity to be promoted. Every institution would have its own culture, this is what you have to learn when you join the company. Overall, patients are kept safe and utmost importance is given to patient care. For career progression, if you are willing to work hard and willing to take courses to progress, it can be given to you.

I do not recommend the RNOH as a place of work. My personal experience was bad in general. I experienced low quality of management and leadership practice

The work at Stanmore Hospitl was interesting having worked in medical records/notes in the past. The confidentiality of the patients is of paramount importance. The staff and patients were friendly and and a good understanding of how to deal with sick patients helped me with this position.

A very interesting job, where you organise the trainee doctors training courses onsite in the hospitals auditorium. This ranges from logistical management to printing notes.

Making appointments for both new and existing patients.
Consulting with senior consultants and other doctors, making sure they have the correct documents for their clinics to see patients.

Speaking with other departments with regards to arranging other medical appointments - X-rays or scan.

It was very difficult to see people coming in with cancer and how they changed, it was heartbreaking at times.
Cons
Seeing kids with cancer

Working on the switchboard and 1st contact for enquiries face to face. I have learned to be more patient in dealing with people as over the phone many calls received are from patients who aren't quite sure of whom they want to contact. Therefore, listening, comunicating and being patient are vital skills for the role. I get on well with my seniors as well as team members and juniors. Together we have created a fun and comfortable working environment. The most difficult part of the role is to be compassionate when receiving calls from pateint kins that are distressed with an outcome after assessment i.e. cancer, tumour, terminal illness, and trying to provide phone support by giving them the time they need just to have a chat. Sometimes it becomes very emotional and mentally draining. However, whilst working at RNOH, it feels good to know that I've made a difference in someones' day, no matter how small.
Pros
Sense of satisfaction when helping people and working with a wonderful team.
Cons
Night Shifts and no weekends OFF
