Overall a good and friendly environment however you will be keep busy and will be constantly working will different people, you would be lucky to learn the names of most of the staff. Very rewarding and I was always tired but happy at the end of a shift
I worked at Basingstoke for 18 months, I found it to be a very friendly well run hospital, with lots of staff development. I did find some senior staff very clicky and if uou werent in the click it coild be tough at times getting support.
Friendly staff, great development
Some staff very clicky, travelling distance
Most departments are great to work in. Children’s unit is different. It’s insular you fit in or you don’t. Mindset is do what you’re told, you cant contribute to change things. Constant questioning from managers if you do something for another member of staff!
Can’t be proactive, questioned if do a good deed for the nursing staff.
The department in which i worked was very close knit, with a wide variation of characters and specialties, from junior staff up to management. Safe and secure environment to work in and plenty of support from various levels of management.
A very rewarding job but also an emotionally challanging. Higher management needs improvement and a better knowledge of the role, as they only focus on money and not want is needed to do the job.
Pay, Helping others, Rewarding
Higher management, more staff needed within the team. Shift work.
I enjoyed my time at this hospital all staff where friendly and caring, the sister on the ward went out her way with her staff gave praise and good ear if you had any worries meaning personal also. Made you feel important and team player.
Lovely place to work
I have nothing but praise for this hospital
Busy but varied administrative role. Filing, scanning, photocopying, typing, telephone work, handling daily post. Dealing with funding of people within care homes.
never knowing if there was a job in the future due to NHS funding
Part of Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Very busy NHS hospital, unable to comment on any area other than Maternity. Small and friendly unit. Very committed multi professional team working , where every team member is valued.
Friendly inclusive working environment
Long hours and breaks not guaranteed
The ward was a busy environment due to the nature of the service users we were caring for. They mainly suffered from Dementia but some had Alzheimers. We worked short staffed all the time and with 16 service users to care for from the start of the day until night time it was hard work as we never had any hoists. The staff were friendly and enjoyed the team spirit which seemed to make days go quicker. After the service users had washed and dressed it was breakfast time. Then depending on the weather outside would depend if we went out for a walk or if the occupational therapists would do an activity on the ward. Throughout the day we would make sure that the ward was clean and that the service users were fully hydrated. Because we as staff got to know the service users so well i found the hardest part of the job was when they passed away. The staff would always go to any funeral as it felt it was our way of finally saying goodbye.
good team work
having to manually lift service users
Staff are overworked and never appreciated. I have learned a lot and great experience which i will carry on. Management are only concerned about saving money, overloading staff with extra tasks and do not have the time to have a one to one meeting with staff
Lunch break and staff discounts.
Pay is not attractive, staff are not appreciated enough
.Hard to manage when work by yourself. .Need more staff. .Staff need to be more supportive. .working hrs are good. .Payment is nice. .Good experience with new field as I learned something new from it. .Gets more day off to spend with family and friends. .Can request for the working days. .Patients are nice you can feel they appreciate what we do for them.
Yes i did enjoy my time at the Hospital and it was a good place to work but change happens and you have to embrace change and have no regrets
I have worked at the hospital for 25 years before taking retirement . when I first started it was about patient and training to to support your career I would have liked to have stayed but the new management I was doing was regraded lower so I was offered early retirement.
Lack of support from management
