Deputy Charge Nurse. in Colchester, Essex
on 17 August 2017
Could be very good.

Every day in the emergency operating theatre is different and the majority of the staff are hard working but there are always a few who want to do as little as necessary and take all the credit for others work. They tend to be the weakest link but bask in the achievements of others.

Extremely well run hospital

Colchester General is a lovely hospital to work for. One thing I noticed is that no matter what band you are, everyone talks and acknowledges everyone. I only worked a two month contract to assist with the pandemic. I’m actually a registered dental nurse. A couple of departments that really stood out were Theatres and Materials management. Lovely people.

Thoroughly rewarding!

Work with a great team, doing a difficult job. Thoroughly rewarding. Amazing support from management, takes a certain type of person to work here though! Not for the faint hearted!

Office Assistant in Colchester

Collleagues lovely- management rubbish

The back up from management is atrocious & because of this the atmosphere in our small office was really bad.

Several people have left our department recently because of the way they have been treated by the manager. The management seem to close ranks.

The job itself is brilliant just the conditions you have to work under - Victorian springs to mind. Very oppressive. Shame because the people in the office were ok.
