Something new every day
Depending on where your working, staff members often move in clicks which sometimes creates a bad working atmosphere. Especially as a young person, lots of nurses talk down to you when giving instructions.

There's lots to learn with regards to knowledge and systems which is hard at first but once you learn bits you feel more confident like you would in any job role.


Patients are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Cons
Expectations

Poor
Poor horrible management treated unfairly loved the patients wish their staff would have been better equipped for new staff and a fresh new mind Would have liked to see better run wards and more factual reasons as to why they are poorly run staff and management

To care for patients and make sure all their needs were met. Help with meal assistance and hygiene needs. To escort patients to appointments. I could also take bloods from patients.

Challenging but rewarding job role
The NHS is a very rewarding business to work in but some aspects can be quite challenging due to there being deadlines on tasks. The most difficult part of the job can be the pressure we are under to complete tasks to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Pros
Good benefits, solid contract hours, professional relationships
Cons
Added pressure, loss of jobs

Productive but chaotic at times.
The hospital is understaffed so it can be a little chaotic but otherwise it is a good working environment. The volunteer coordinator is very helpful and you ca work as little or as much as you like.

Busy Data Entry Assistant
While working within the Hospital I was first for a week working on the Physiotherapy Department on reception, signing patients in for their appointments, booking new appointments, answering the telephone.

After the first week I was moved to Occupational Therapy department where my main job was Date Entry, I also answered the phones and taking messages for the Personal Secretary for the Occupational Therapy Manager.


Taking tea and coffee orders from delegates for meetings, photocopying, filing and other jobs for other departments

Excellent Learning Opportunities
A typical day at work involved carrying out initial interviews, including risk assessments, collaborating aims and goals with service users, treatment planning and evaluation.
Whilst on placement, I had gained the opportunity to develop my skills within a range of areas, such as; carrying out initial assessments, collaborating aims and goals with service users, treatment planning and when liaising with Multi Disciplinary Team.

No issues were identified with the management within the trust

I thought that the trust could have improved on their ability to employ a mixture of individuals from different cultural back grounds.

I thought that the hardest part of the job was having to cope with the demands of my hours of work as I had to commute 5 days a week from a long distance..

I enjoyed meeting different patients form all walks of life and found it rewarding when I was able to apply the skill I had gained whilst contributing towards, making a difference within individual lives.
Pros
Excellent learning opportunities.
Cons
Having to commute from a far distance and poor bus route.

A changing environment
Historically this trust has had its share of bad press and sometimes rightly so. But changes are happening now that are making this organisation an enjoyable place to work. New ideas and innovative ways of working are now encouraged. New initiatives to allow staff on the ground to really have their say, are happening. I have been here for a year and I am thoroughly enjoying this challenging role. The team are great and management are supportive and engaging.
Pros
Good holidays
Cons
Parking spaces are in short supply
