Easy Work, Tough Life
I worked part of the 999 call team. The work can be interesting but 75% of the time its the same thing, same types of call, and you're never learning anything new.
The working environment is very informal, and far from professional, to say its part of NHS.
Had to leave because like most people it just messes with your head. 12 hour shifts, on and off. Sometimes went days without sleep, and not due to constamtly being at work but it having affects on your personal life.
If youre in to just doing your job and getting out of there and able to bite the bullet, and able to take the occasional 'racist banter' then feel free to join.
