Health Care Assistant in Rugby

It’s ok
Nothing special but good work ethic from the team I work in, management ok but if want to ask something feel a bit put out, as they always busy, no proper staff room, but friendly and caring colleagues

Full time Health Care Assistant in Northampton, Northamptonshire

Tougher than what they want you to believe.
Honestly, I was able to enjoy part of the job cause I already am a people person and always enjoyed volunteering so I hang in there for the patients and ignored the nonsense but, you really need thick skin to be a HCA at this hospital. Also need to take good care of yourself, or the environment, long shifts pattern and coworkers will mess up your mental health when you need it the most to be competent on your duties as a carer. Challenging enough. We can’t give care if we are not cared for, that’s KEY and unfortunately there was nothing like that for HCA’s. It feels as if you are invisible, not to mention the payment is extremely low for what we do and go through, plus the risks it involves. If (like me) you can focus on the positive impact you are having on the patients, that will keep you going most of the times. But my advice, do not accommodate or stay there too long... There is no sense of fulfilment when nothing you do matters from the people you work for perspective’s. That place eats you up from the inside.

Very fast paced place to work. Unsociable hours as part of contract as a midwife. Pay is not reflective of the amount of work that we do but there are plenty of opportunities for career progression if you take the chance.
