Staff Nurse Band 5 (Current Employee) – Wellington, Somerset – 30 April 2018
I have worked 17 years for the NHS, I enjoyed meeting lots of people, patients and their families. Working with different individuals, made the long hours going faster, having fun at work makes life enjoyable and desirable to continue contributing for the Trust.
Crisis managed. Constant abusive calls due to incorrect paperwork from managers. Work colleagues are amazing. Managers not so good. Equality and diversity promoted as being primary concern but in reality doesn't work. Hardest part of work is vast workload. Promotion only happens for certain people.
