long hours and shifts are hard to fit in with young children and family life

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
It was a very stressful environment as staff shortages due to coronavirus meant there were never enough staff. I worked as a Bank Health Care Support Worker, but the shift times are hard to fit around children and childcare, 7.30am starts and 12 hour shifts. I mainly did 12 hour night shifts but found it difficult in school holidays or if children were off school.

Rubbish company

When you have a accident in work. You find no one was helpful. And once you can't work due nature of accident. You soon know who friends colleagues are. They don't ring see if okay if you are coping. They all disappears .Management didn't take responsibility of their actions and blames. Absolutely disgusting how staff treat other staffIn all departments if that health board.

Best place to work..

Its an excellent place to work with , good team work, good benefits. I really enjoying working with N.H.S. Everybody's working so hard to achieve the N.H.S. plan that sets out the pathways for new service model for the 21st century.

Not too bad

Ok but seem to be having a time with ongoing plans for future hospital set up. Was a lot worse but seems to be bit better these days. Good luck. Beautiful beaches down here.

Fantastic community

I loved working at the hospital where I made lots of friends. The salary for my working hours was fantastic. The training you receive as part of your job is very good. I learned a great deal about office work and received several qualifications during my time in this job.

Avoid the bank!

Can’t speak for in-hospital management, but the nurse bank office is tragic. Withheld pay for 9 weeks because Admin staff had ‘lost’ our training files and they were not externally reviewed, plunging me into so much debt that I couldn’t afford to drive to work. Refused to let me onto the general bank roster/text service to pick up shifts, only to let another colleague (interviewed and trained on the same dates as I had) onto the system 10 minutes after I had requested!! We were sat right next to each other making the calls to the office and spoke to the same member of staff. Worst employees I’ve ever had, and I’ve worked for some shockers!


The work is satisfying.


You are a number on the system and you will be treated as such.

Good and Bad

The fellow members of staff are incredibly friendly to work with and in most areas there is a great sense of togetherness. There are lots of ups and downs but on the whole, everyone is trying hard to help the patients.

productive workplace

The hospital members of staff were very helpful in terms of patients care and passed a lot of knowledge to me. My supervisor was always answering and addressing my questions and worries. Overall, I have learnt a lot through volunteering in the hospital and working with elderly patients. I have developed my understanding of confidentiality, dignity and respect.
