Hospital play specialist in Devon

Okay work place
It is a good place to work, the pay doesn't justify the workload and work stresses. No room to progress and develop into further more successful roles.

Don't bother
YAS has to be the worst place I have ever worked. You are over worked. Under paid. Under staffed. Worst thing about YAS is the management. They have more over qualified management than they do staff on the road. They complain there is no paramedics but they are all sat at a desk sorting out rotas. They employ way to many underqualified staff and wonder why everyone wants to leave. Honestly don't bother its not worth your health.

4 years and multiple let downs
If you have a team player work ethic and struggle to say no to you will suffer for your kindness. Overworking employees to compensate for the constant lack of staffing is not a long term solution, but they will apply that pressure on you anyway. Very rarely will you be recognised for your dedication and hard work - if they do it will lack sincerity. I was fortunate to have a lovely manager for 2 and a half years when I first joined Croydon NHS, however as I started to move on to other roles within the department I worked for, that quickly became my last pleasant experience there. Late hours, excessive work load, pressure from stressed colleagues and an extremely toxic work culture. You will quickly discover that the toxic gossip culture is not so much with immediate team members but within the senior management teams. Constant breaches of staff confidentiality and insensitivity. Took a promotion that included on the job studying and it was the worst experience I have ever had in my educational career purely because of the workplace. They are not equipped to help or support students that they receive funding for and expect the cohort to meet the standards of long standing colleagues overnight - I eventually left without completing the amazing course I had enrolled into and lost all my hard work. I would strongly caution anyone looking to work in Croydon Pharmacy.

Really enjoyed working for the nhs during lock down, it was very fast paced but I enjoyed being on the wards with patients, I had a great supervisor who supported you with anything

Job satisfaction
Love the job, my colleagues. Social aspect. Hate the red tape. Management sometimes unhelpful. Long days. Stressful. emotionally traumatic at times. Rewarding
