Cliquey, bullied by colleagues. Unreasonable expectations during heatwave. Management don’t care when your struggling with workload. Upper management can be helpful in resolving issues. Great place if we weren’t under so much pressure.

Insights into King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Based on 40 survey responses
What people like
  • Clear sense of purpose
  • Feeling of personal appreciation
  • Ability to learn new things

Fast pace that is demanding incongruent to their staff ratios. They expect to do more with a few heads.

Poorly managed. Not uniform with other areas. Other areas are managed well, like their staff rooms, no designated sleeping quarters for night staff compared to other trusts, some are just physically there but not doing the work. Poor when it comes to resolution and solving root cause of the problems (e.g. infection control, broken communication with staff, etc.).Resources are being wasted.


Supportive when it comes to staff problems


Poor solutions with staff problems Slow in finding solutions

Great place to learn, teaching quality excellent

A really good place to learn and be familiar with the latest evidence based practice. Technology in health really good, safety is a priority. If you want to learn and put in practice your nursing skills supported by technology and autonomy Kings is the right place to be. Nursing in Kings is tough job but people and your colleagues make everything easier. Not everyone will be a sweet candy as in any other job. I found working for Kings College as the best experience I had in nursing. Please apply do not hesitate to gain the experience to work for one of the best Hospitals in London.

Great Hospital, toxic leadership

Lovely hospital and clinical staff are passionate to deliver the best quality care possible which managers do not appreciate and often do give credit unless it benefits them. Toxic senior management who are more interested in their own legacy or progression they are not aware the negative impact they have on patient care. Whilst the messages of delivering patient care is their and we are reminded everyday, it does not reflect reality. The ward staff not so much more credit for the amazing care they deliver


Passionate nursing and medical staff, friendly and open


Toxic management who are blinded by their own ambition

Very poor management

Very poor management. Lazy staff could get on with their customs...Every time I have raised a concern about some staff members I felt like it was just brushed behind the door.

Fast paced, busy and short staffed.

Care that is effective and efficient is paramount in King's ethos, however resources are incredibly stretched and there is a major deficit in staffing levels.


Prestigious establishment


Poor staffing levels

It can be fun to work there and some time it is not

Am just using the website for the first time so I don't know how effect is going to be. I was not happy in my old post after I came back from long time illness . So I can not really give true review at the moment.


The environment can be conducive to work in


Long hours and busy
