Technical Pharmacy Assistant in Crewe

Great team culture
Really enjoyed my time with the NHS. Salary is low for the levels of responsibility held. The environment and the sense of belonging makes for a good workplace though.
Community Support Worker in Shipston on Stour

Great supportive team , very rewarding job
My job has many varied tasks everyday is different, it’s very frontline so therefore you never know what each day may bring. As we are rural we get to meet patients from a variety of backgrounds etc so always interesting. The team are what makes my job all the better as they support encourage and are always on the end of the phone when needed or will come with you to assist if needed. Great career progression and advice if required.
Administration Clerk in Northampton
on 23 September 2022
Fast Paced, Patient Faced, Professionalism
Very fast paced place to work, where the goal post changes most days. Very supportive Senior Staff and Management. Great teamwork rapport. This place is face to face, over the phone and via electronic communication. Strengths you need are consistent professionalism at all times, team player and willing to go above and beyond for the safety of all patients no matter the medical background. Confidentiality is a must.
Nurse in Southampton

The NHS is failing, too political, impossible to make change. 90% of people who work here are miserable. Unsociable hours and poor work/life balance. Poor pay. Only good thing is you have job security
G.P Receptionist/ administrator in Swindon

Like most jobs working for the NHS you are in the public eyes as withholding treatment or not doing things correctly or quickly enough.This can become very stressful and disheartening
