Facilities Technician in Leeds
on 5 February 2023
Not a bad place to work at
Everyone I have ever worked with was very kind and helpful. If I had any questions they wouldn't hesitate to take a few minutes out of their duties to show me how to do something.Everything was pretty much a smooth experience except for the supervisors... extremely pushy and rude, did not care about the staff's well-being as long as they would do the tasks they give and usually those tasks can be extremely unrealistic to achieve before my shift is over.So overall, the workplace itself was fine, the equipment was fine, most of the people except the supervisors were great to work with.

Pay is NOT worth the stress
You're given so much work and responsibility, which honestly is great for experience, but not worth all the stress and fatigue you will eventually get — especially when the pay you get at the end of the month is no where near good enough for everything you have to do. Being a nursing assistant means you're at the bottom of the hospital hierarchy, meaning that everyone will boss you about and you're the first to blame when something goes wrong.You're given so many patients to work with and are basically on your feet all day for 12 hours. When it's understaffed — and it's almost ALWAYS is — it's even worse. Many staff members call off sick repeatedly and you just have to deal with working with double the amount of patientsAdvancement for a career and more opportunities are good but this whole experience has just taught me that NHS is a mess and I never want to work in hospitals ever again. This job is a joke and has killed any desire I had in me to work in healthcare.

Not the NHS I first went Into
I have worked in the NHS for 15 years and can honestly say that the pandemic has finished it. The moral is low, impact on mental health is very high with sickness constantly across the sector's.The so called cheif executives and management have no idea how bad the NHS has become. The majority of them have not been clinical for a number of years yet seem to think they know what hospital and community settings needs. They hide behind meetings and answering emails whilst they should be standing next to the "floor workers" who are working extremely hard to the point of burn out. Working to keep our patient s safe and trying to see them as soon as we can whilst the management reap the praise.
HCA in Norwich

Management has no skills to be managers plus they don't care. As long as you close friend or family member- you are safe and untouchtable. No dyscipline. No work ethic. That is why hard and good workers are leaving this place and all lazy ones have a cushy job and getting reward recognisions. This place going down the hill. Nothing will fix it.

Supportive managers and friendly staff. Fulfilling work
Community Physiotherapist and work is well balanced and fulfilling. Managers are supportive and rest of the team are friendly and helpful. Can make a big impact to so many lives.
