Few to work, thousands in offices
Health Care Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bath, Somerset18 May 2019
Joined RUH a few years ago as Health Care Assistant. You must fight really hard to be able to help patients. Close group of people guards their salaries, sitting in the offices and sipping tea all the time.
The worst place I had ever worked and I have been working in Health and Social Care sector for 20 years.
Doctors and office workers no morale at all.
Against few nurses and assisting them staff.
Pros
Zero
Cons
Bullying, harassment, patients crying for help

An excellent Trust
Head of Financial Services (Former Employee) –  Bath1 February 2019
Job mainly a hand holding exercise with generally an excellent quality of staff who in the main had been with the Trust for many years, but un-typically were still open to ways to improve.
Liaison with senior finance executives did prove problematic but this was due mainly to problems in negotiating 2018/19 contracts.
Pros
Third time as the RUH
Cons
Travelling in poor road conditions in Februaryand March

Good for some not for others ...
Pharmacy Dispensary Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bath18 June 2018
In a nutshell I felt under payed, used and abused ...
Policies are undermined by management to suit own agenda's, there was a strong sense of isolation and exclusion. Bullying does occur and is kept under wraps and within closed circles.
Power and influence seem to be common politics at the hospital.
Overall, it's good for some and not for others.
Pros
Helping people can be rewarding
Cons
Workplace politics and bullying

Assist Patients (Former Employee) –  Bath3 March 2018
Staff are under constant pressure they need more staff being trained rather having to many chiefs and no Indians over managed and under staffed. I think there are to many people in high salaries and the people who work the hardest are on minimum wage...

Senior Sister (Current Employee) –  POAS8 January 2018
There are too many changes taking place that don't have a positive outcome for the staff. Nursing numbers are too low. The RUH is a nice place to work but I feel I require a change.

Large busy Hospital covering a large area
Receptionist/Administrator (Former Employee) –  Bath and North East Somerset12 April 2017
A very busy audiology outpatient clinic with constant phone calls as well as attending to patients attending appointments and those coming in for spare hearing aid parts. 2 post deliveries to sort, 1 in the morning and 1 in the afternoon.

I learned how to deal with customer expectation and how to organise admin workload so as not to be overloaded.

Management was exceptionally supportive in this particular outpatient clinic.

The culture was to support each other.

Managing patient expectations were the hardest to meet.

The best part of the job were the patients, being part of helping them to live with hearing loss

although a shortage of medical secretarial supply, medical secretarial qualifications disregarded, and low output of work supply.
Temporary Clerical Worker (Former Employee) –  Bath, Somerset29 March 2017
A typical day at work depended on the clinical typing. Circumstances were more about workplace culture and how you managed people than the workload. The hardest part of the job was the workplace culture and the most enjoyable was the clinical part knowing it was helping an individuals life from an adminstrative view point especially if clinics were typed within twenty-four hours rather than three weeks down the line. Administrative staff gossiped rather than worked and medical staff were provoked to take too much notice.
Pros
interesting
Cons
limited
