Overall good place to work, management not so great Typical day 9-5 Mon- Fri Learnt lots through NHS funded courses most enjoyable part of the job is meeting new people everyday and being able to help them.
good working hours
Training for new staff was very good and well.organised. Additional training relevant to your role was readily accessible. Arriving on first day, they made so easy People were very professional as I worked at various bases I was always made to feel welcome
There are a lot of things that need changing in this trust and i think many people who work for this trust would agree with me. For starters, members of staff who are on the bank should be offered a permanent position after 1 year of working and also there should be room for development within the trust instead of having to go for an interview for every single job opportunity.
This is a great Foundation Trust where staff feel valued and able to provide positive patient care. The staff are very friendly and caring and patients are treated based on the core values Caring, Open, Respectful, Responsible and Inclusive.
Bad management, change in working terms/conditions , closures of crucial services, constant shortage of staff , no career progression whatsoever , bad working conditions and work morale. Miserable /stressed faces from managers, constantly making changes and placing more pressure on hard working HCAs. You might as well sign yourself into slavery...
Until the culture changes within the NHS, I would not recommend that any of my friends should work for this organisation. Unfortunately the NHS is severely short of workers in all disciplines and that is because it is a thankless blame culture organisation.
Stressful, no chance of advancing further.
Every day is busy, and stressful I have learned that you can give everything to your job and sometimes that’s not enough and management want much more from you. Workplace is good but everyone is very stressed which causes anxiety Hardest part of the job is volume of work and maintaining it to a manageable level Most enjoyable part of the job is satisfaction when jobs complete which does not happen very often
Occasional happy faces
Not finishing on time
The people I worked with day to day were fine but senior management is poor. I think there has been enough said in the media about the NHS without me adding to the narative.
Nature of service
Poor progression, friends mentality.
The day-to-day was lovely, but it was very slow at times and there wasn't as much to do - but it was a work placement, not a full time job so for what it's worth, it was a great and friendly environment and the staff were welcoming and helpful.
the job can be pressurised at times. Generally an interesting and rewarding job but sometimes frustrating, with the amount of calls, and too much to do, not enough time. They need more staff. People are nice to work with although it takes a long to get things done as it is so busy. Nice building, nice place to sit and eat lunch outside, good canteen.
People bring in cake sometimes, reasonable hours, nice building.
Don't get paid much considering the amount of work, too many calls coming in, not enough staff to keep on top of it.
I enjoyed my time with this trust, however there is a lack of security, i.e job cuts. I gained much knowledge and experience during my employment. Even the temporary assignments are useful. I had the opportunity to take part in events and facilitate inductions and training programmes, I gained in confidence.
Good working hours
Birmingham Community Healthcare Trust isn't a bad place to work and there is always work available here. i wish there was some form of secretary with jobs as there are a lot of cuts being made at this moment in time. I have noticed within my 3 and a half ywars of working here that there are manyu departments who do not have permanent members of staff but they are happy to keep Foxed-Term or Agency and Bank staff. This is not a company that I feel like i can stay in any longer so I feel like I am Basically being forced to leave this company and go to another one. Sometimes Managers don't help the situation either because they never give positive information and they are willing to keep people for a lower pay who can't even do the job correctly. I would just advise to rethink before applying for the NHS as the Banding is never fair either, I feel like the amount of work that we do for what we get paid is not correct. People get paid Band 3 pay when they are doing Band 5 work, where is the justice in that?
Job Banding is not right.
