Medical Secretary in Surrey

Hard work, low pay
Hard work for little financial or professional reward. The NHS is run by middle management who are obsessed with targets and budgets, and your performance is monitored under a microscope. Staff morale is on the floor.

Great management
Management great to work for but some colleagues are quite challenging. Overall not a bad company but some improvements needed to enable team work to be better
Theatre Support Worker in Swindon

Interesting and enjoyable at times, but stressful and very cliquey
I don't think I can put my whole experiance into this box. I started just before covid, and wasn't fully tained by the time it came around. Very crazy and unpredictable times. The work itself was very interesting though the people could fluctuate between great to very horrible. Nothing was done really to sort the horrible people out, and even higher bands could be very inappropriate. New manager was amazing, but there was a lot of stress all around. In all - loved some of the team, didn't love others. Lots of opertunity to move up and train internally, but stressful and the job isn't for everyone.

Poor pay,conditions for responsibility
Worked for NHS for 40 plus years. The culture was supportive and if you have a good manager a pleasure to work with a good team. However the latter years were driven by a culture of management bullying, no support, hidden agenda, a lack of focus on putting the patient first. This is because meeting impossible targets take prescident over focusing on encouraging and supporting staff when the do a good job. There are some great individual managers who support staff and fantastic people working in difficult situations who largely are un recognised those others who are ready to step on colleges to advance professionally. Overwhelmed by paperwork and fear of non compliance and completion.

Great working environment
The NHS is one of the best employers for all aspects, although I think sometimes things issues can be overlooked and not dealt with and that erodes confidence and self esteem.
