Staff Nurse in London

Great and rewarding just understaffed
Job would be amazing if staffing was amazing which unfortunately it’s not been made to be an attractive job. Staff are supportive in most places you work

Very exhausting at times, not appreciated
I loved working for the NHS when I started portering 3 years ago, but since covid and all the backlog that has built up, we’re (overworked) (under staffed) (underpaid) (unappreciated) basically not a good place to work now, everyone tries their best, but when your understaffed the strain you can feel as soon as you start your shift until you finish it, I’m trying very hard now to get employment elsewhere, I never thought I’d feel like that this in nhs, but it is what it is, and all you hear is off staff is, I’m leaving,They are already thousands short of staff, and the way we are being treated that’s only going to get worse not better, so the ones that are still in there have the burden of covering up the staffing problems by doing extra themselves, which is taking it’s toll, I’m disgusted at the government for they’re failure in allowing this to happen in the first place, it’s pretty simple to be honest, give a pay that reflects the work that we all do, that in turn will help bring back some staff and encourage others to join nhs, and start appreciating what every staff member is going through in these hard time, I’m a very sad man that feels, as do thousands of others, under appreciated, underpaid, overworked, and that basically is it in a nutshell 😞

Higher Management not supportive
NHS is lacking funding in all areas but you can see where money is being wasted. Long waiting lists. Lots of unnecessary organisational changes. Work / home life balance is excellent and the rate of pay is competitive.

Stressful place to work
Stressful place to work. Management are difficult to work for. However professional health care staff are great to work with.Enjoyed working alongside healthcare staff.
Health Care Support Worker Staffordshire in Staffordshire

A fast paced most days, time goes fast, patients are lovely. It’s a rewarding job, when you get good feedback. We have a great team of hard working staff who pull together. We always have deadlines to meet lots of patients to take care of, they are always very grateful which gives you happiness knowing we are doing a great job.
