Community Midiwfe (Former Employee) – SWFT – 14 June 2018
Unable to fulfill the demands of the job in a seven and a half hour day.
Management pay lip service to staff and do not listen to their concerns. HR and unions are not involved in significant changes that management impose on the workforce as they should be every step of the way,
Managers recruit to more senior positions with limited closing dates earmarked for those internal they have in mind. No external adverts for head of midwifery or deputy head in 2016/17 two people just given the roles.

Band 6 School Nurse (Former Employee) – South warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust – 23 March 2016
In someways this was a good place to work, with some lovely staff on the team. However he Managers were unsupportive of staff having a work life balance, and only interested in filling staffing hours for commissioning purposes.
Small and friendly hospital, whilst providing daily challenges.
Pre-Registration Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Warwick, ENG – 11 March 2014
Compared to other hospitals in the West Midlands region, the hospital is very small - but that doesn't mean it gets boring. In the pharmacy, there was always work to be done. Balancing dispensing of prescriptions for in-patients, out-patients and discharges whilst handling phone calls from colleagues and out-patients. Other technicians were supportive and helped to ensure you knew the correct procedures and pharmacy legislation.
Expected to achieve targets but given free rein to do so
Secretary/Administrator (Current Employee) – Nuneaton – 28 November 2012
There is a certain amount of repetativeness as in any role. Expect the unexpected and never cut corners, it doesn't work. Always share information if its work connected. It is best to try and get on with your co workers as you are stuck with each other all day. I feel sometimes the work loads are hard. I often find I am right though and there are often coincidences where I look into a problem and an answer appears out of the blue, which is great. Dont expect too much in the way of thanks, you are there to do a job and be paid for it afterall. It is nice to think you can make a difference, keep a positive mental attitude, although this is not always easy.
