Covid-19 Mass immuniser - band 3 in Cardiff
on 25 May 2022
Great to work for
Very understanding and supportive staff around you in some difficult environments. Easy to make friends and gives a good work life balance. Good to get foot in the door

Appalling management
They often don't respond to requests when wanting help with incorrect pay/ shifts not put on or authorized on the bank. Also when your banding in low (band 2 or 3) you are not listened too. If you try to get promoted - forget it if you are not family or friends with those in power as nepotism is RIFE!!!! Use your time there to get experience and then take your experience elsewhere if you want to build a career.
Psychological well-being Practitioner in Chorley, Lancashire

Challenging but supportive
I trained as a PWP and I was lucky enough to be kept on once I qualified. The team are very supportive and they are aware that working as a PWP is very demanding. Work-life balance is a challenge but management are aware of this, but unfortunately it is the nature of working as a PWP. The service try to support you in anyway they can.

Beneficial
You learn lifelong valued skills within healthcare.If you are in the right team it can be very enjoyable to work. Some teams often have clicks especially from the older the staff. If the team is good it makes your day much better

a very stressful place to work
NHS is a place to work, your first week at work is very interesting because you have to interact with people from different background and culture, but apart from that, nothing good about working in NHS, full of bullying, discrimination, intimidation and stressfull.
