Good and busy

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Really good place to start your nursing career as busy and loads of job openings across sites. You can transfer unit to unit easily. Con only is the restaurants are very limited and not a lot of shops for staff

Overworked and not appreciated

What is the best part of working at the company?None that I can think off . I felt totally unsupported by the trust when I stepped down from a sponsorship position . What is the most stressful part about working at the company?The wards being understaffed thus not be able to provide safe care for for the patients in your care . When you do have enough staff they are taken to work on wards that are understaffed What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Annoying when staff speak in their own language to their colleagues of the same culture What is a typical day like for you at the company?Busy busy busy busy … constantly on the go and always chasing your tail

Worst management

I’ve worked in OT departments across 3 trusts. Frimley health was the worst run OT department I’ve worked for, the manager made me feel inadequate and upset on several occasions, I was fresh from university when this happened. I only did a year in the trust, looking back now, I can’t believe how bad the management was. I should have spoken up at the time, but was so new to the profession and felt very lost. Now I have worked in friendly and well managed OT departments elsewhere, I felt it was right to leave a review.


Ensured lunch breaks

Productive & fun workplace

Generally well managed hospitals looking to maximise productivity constantly. Hard working staff will get on. Training available & people learn every day in hospitals!

Stressful and understaffed

Not enough staff, difficult management. Some of the people within pharmacy cause lots of drama and make it an uncomfortable place to work. Wouldn’t recommend

Unappreciated - just a number

You are not appreciated for the work you do. No recognition for going above and beyond. Questionable management with no experience or training to do the role.

No care for employees

FHFT raves about the health and wellbeing of their staff, it is all a front. Everything comes down to the service needs. Get your employees needs sorted then they may keep staff to give good service needs. New electronic patient system, is complicated, non- user friendly, non-medical friendly and non- admin friendly. They should have not spent such millions on a system that is American. The previous systems were not broken so why spend a ridiculous amount of money on a system that is quite frankly complicated and non-user friendly.




Lack of management skills.

Interesting and fast paced

Long hours, high pressure environment. No two days are the same. Often short staffed. Be prepared to be moved from your permanent ward if you are needed elsewhere


Good pension


Car park charges

Great teamwork

Frimley Park Hospital is a good place to work. I am currently changing job because I am moving to more affordable area - if not that I would not live that trust, at least for some time. It is stressfull to work in the NHS, no matter what trust, ward and county, the pay is everywhere the same and it is not really enough. My ward managers are doing their best to keep patients safe, ward well organised and staff happy. My team is the best, we have a strong sense of belonging, we always help each other. The hospital invests in a good quality cannulas and dressings. Bed managers put lots of pressure on us unfortunately, which does not make sense, as it is not our fault there are no beds in the hospital. Their behaviour gives us lots of stress and they are often very rude. There is no such thing as a perfect place to work but despite of the struggles I recommend working there.

Pretty good

-Busy days - whether thats bank or contracted hours - which is good if you need to take on extra shifts -Staff parking is easy and accessible -Good warm food options for vegetarians-Kind and welcoming colleagues, like a family -Can get really fast-paced depending on the delivery timings from London of samples, so may need to stay extra (although this is not a requirement, extra pay tho!)-Sundays double pay, and increased pay nights.

Minimum wage for maximum work

Unsupported, over worked, many staff untrained and not been CRB checked. So many staff members suffering with mental health issues and stress, with no help, support or understanding from managers.

Depressing, antiquated place to work

They require more of you than you could possibly give then put you on a warning for not achieving the impossible. Out dated working atmosphere. To many bosses who actually don't know what you do. You will need to go above your means to make it through a day. They have so many bosses because you are monitored on everything you do, totally ridiculous.

Good work place

Good place to work but not the best. Would recommend people who love challenges and hard-works. After pandemic I found work more tough and stressful due to staff shortage and there were no any reward ( apart from sweets and some goodies )for the frontline carer who gave their life and had to work all day long with no complain for the sake of patient life.
