NHS Employee Review

Outdated systems, lack of opportunity for progression, hiring less qualified individuals and paying them more than others

The NHS is extremely outdated and disorganised and everyone that works there is aware of it but nothing is ever done. Most of the management were lovely but a few let themselves down, extremely power hungry and can’t stand if people ‘less superior’ to them have an opinion different to theirs. One of my colleagues was told at their exit interview that they don’t have the skillset required to get the job they want and then ended up getting a job in their desired field that paid 10k more and is now thriving. Also a lot of discrepancy between how they pay their staff. Hiring people with degrees plus experience and paying them considerably less than someone with no degree and a lack of experience. Then saying they can’t progress into that higher band until they’ve worked in the department for 2 years, very bizarre. Wouldn’t except any job offered again.

Cons

Pay discrepancy, power hungry managers, disorganised, lack of opportunity for progression

Great line management support. Good corporate culture and passion for patients' positive outcome. Room for innovation and flexibility in reproach to solving analytical problems.
