I really enjoyed my time working at BCH, from when I was a student through to employment once qualified! The team I was part of was fantastic. Had a couple of unfriendly encounters with staff from other areas but overall this is a nice place to work. The children and families are fantastic and the work that BCH does is amazing! Would highly recommend - I still miss it myself having moved on to new ventures!
Great teams, Medical staff are generally very approachable
Sometimes hard work is underappreciated by those staff at "the top"
I have worked at both sites. Firstly I would not recommend the childrens at all. Sadly I'm not the only one. Management is terrible, you feel belittled. However, the Woman's (where i work now) is much better. The management here is much better and feel supported. Obviously wherever you work there will be people who talk behind your back, but it's not too bad here.
Each day I would do something different. There would be times where I wouldn't be sitting down which I liked. I would attend teachings presented by consulants and also research in progress meeting. I would also help any patients to where they need to go.
Something different everyday
It was my very first experience to work in a western country. My two years in BCH were outstanding mainly by virtue of outstanding team they have got in Pediatric Cardiac Surgery! Such a healthy environment and cooperative team. Two thumbs up!
Facilitating team in Pediatric cardiac surgery, good management
Being placed in city center, parking places are scarce.

Everyone works hard together as one big family, particularly in hard times of which there are many. We have a great support network. However on the negative side the on calls are exceptionally stressful as we are classed as a major trauma centre but have no night shift and only one ODP with no recovery after a certain time leaving the very urgent stuff in the night for the ODP to cover both roles together.
occasionally get to leave one hour early
mostly have to work late and very long hours
My job was most enjoyable, making a difference to the environment that I am employed and that above all else is important to me and always has been. The management and workplace culture were busy but engaging and there were always visible results from any staff consultation. The hardest part of my job was the inability to resolve all issues faced due to restrictions on budgets or ability to make a change with stakeholers. The most enjoyable part was being able to influence policy and see those changes put in place, making a difference to what we delivered and thus achieved.
A typical day at this hospital involves managing the diary of two consultant plastic surgeons which also includes the outpatient and inpatient waiting lists. I am also involved in managing the outpatient clinics as well as MDT clinics. This is a thoroughly varied role which requires working as part of a team but also on my own initiative. The workplace culture is very friendly but professional at the same time. The hardest part of this job is to not get emotionally involved in issues arising from cancelled operations etc and to remain impartial but sympathetic at the same time. I thoroughly enjoy the variety of work that I am expected to do and have a keen interest in learning new medical terminologies all the time.
team work is key to the smooth running of list's for patient and staff a like , I learned a great deal from blood collection and life support to cleaning theatre's our work day's are varied and can be demanding it's the NHS so never a dull moment.
