  • Be nicer to have option to chose just am or just pm , rotational shifts are a thing of the past ...

  • Very long and busy.

  • 8 hours x day

  • 10 - 13 hour days.

Or doing night shifts as blocks to allow people to shift there circadian rhythm permanently for a month or two to minimise the dangers involved form the huge stress altering sleep puts on your body and the negative cognitive impact.

  • Fine - they just respond to client need.

  • Good working hours, standard across NHS. 37.5. Opportunities for part time working as a nurse not common.

  • 12 and half hour long days and nights. Clinics have shorter hours. You can do bank rather than contract. You can offer to work 24 hour contracts
