Health care assistant (Former Employee) – St Albans, Hertfordshire – 19 March 2019
i worked for this hospital for nearly 2 years and i found it very enjoyable. the best thing about just job was making sure patients are comfortable and happy. the worst part about the job was the loss of patients.
Senior Cancer Information Analyst (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 11 October 2018
The team worked quite well together and were able to move away from the old challenges of silo working to a more joined-up working practice so the IT worked with informatics and the services to enable better patient experience
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) – watford general hospital – 25 July 2018
the hardest part of the job was the weekends where i was by myself for all of it having to sell stock to customers while serving them coffee at the same time there was usually 2 queues one for people waiting for coffee and another waiting to buy things with a mix of people wanting to buy coffees in that queue that and i also had to keep the shop tidy and having to restock the shop while doing everything at once the job was so stressful i had to leave it
Work Experience Student (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 12 July 2018
although I was only there for 5 days I learnt more things about the job that I want to go in though because the doctors were helpful and extremely caring. it is a comfortable environment that allows candidates to explore different jobs provided in the NHS, this allows individuals to experience the role that works best for them.
Health Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 23 June 2018
Firstly recruitment were rude, not helpful and didn’t communicate when my actual start date would be, meaning I missed out on 2 months pay. Secondly when I first started, two hours in I was left alone with nine patients and when I asked for help the nurse more or less refused. Finally I have gone out of my way to book myself for training because mangerement wouldn’t supporting me.
However since doing bank, I have loved working in the children’s department.
A lot of off duty
No respect, no support, looking after up to 20 patients, no choice in professional progression
Healthcare Assistant (Former Employee) – Watford – 14 May 2018
i enjoyed my tim working here. it was a busy ward and lots of patients coming and going. the staff were knowledgeable in what they did and most were helpful in the day to day running of things. i had a few problems but who doesnt. the job was exciting.
Physician (Current Employee) – Watford – 6 April 2018
Typical DGH - good team & sufficient senior support. The general area that WGH covers is relatively vast so there is a wide variety of patients that you will come across - as a junior within my profession this is perfect to ensure continuous learning!
A&E is a fast paced environment. There is never a dull moment nor time to rest and dwell on issues. The team work is second to none and all my colleagues are great individuals who give their heart and soul day in and day out. But you have to have drive, passion and endless enery.
Support Secretary (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 21 January 2018
Management at the department I worked for was horrendous. Job location was advertised as being at St Albans City Hospital, but I ended up working for four months at Watford General Hospital. Too far to travel. I left after four months due to a fractured wrist. Lead clinician does not have a good bedside manner when it comes to his staff - Jekyll and Hyde. Department is located in a Portakabin and working in a one is not ideal whatever time of year. The department should have had an administrator to leave the secretarial staff to do their jobs. Staff benefits were good - Pilates, relaxation appointment (massages), very good restaurant.
MDT Coordinator Cancer Unit (Former Employee) – Watford, Hertfordshire – 7 January 2018
I enjoyed my roles here and found them to be very hardworking team emebers in the face of such challenges within the healthcare system. Challenging yes, but the majority of employees go above and beyond the call of duty.
