Overworked and under paid...

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
The pay isn't enough for the amount of stress working here causes - and I don't mean working as a nurse/doctor. - on the administration side. Bear this in mind!

stressful

The work day changed depending on the shift you worked, days were very different to nights. The job was highly satisfying as youa got to help the public and those in need.

Stressed but happy workplace

Loved meeting the patients and enjoyed working with so many of the staff, who give everyone their best. Just wish the management was more accountable.

Busy Environment, Easy to adapt to.

Busy Environment. Easy to adapt to, the rules and guidelines often change so you need to make sure you are able to adapt to each situations. Very little opportunity for growth within same departments, but overall growth within your role can be transferred to other departments and roles.

Challenging and rewarding

The environment is challenging but very rewarding. Colleagues are generally supportive of one another and aim to deliver high standards of healthcare through administrative support to the medical staff.

Fast paced

Lots of training needed for access to NHS systems, it’s a very much learn on the job roles as training given doesn’t match up to what you need. Some departments are slow to move forward.

fanatstic trust

I thoroughly enjoyed working at Guys , what a wonderful trust with amazing people . I enjoyed going to work every day . The only reason I left was due to the commute. I would definitely recommend working for such a positive and hardworking NHS trust.

Generally a nice organisation to work for.

I worked in a team of very dedicated health care professionals. We all learned from each other and were able to overcome difficulties together. The organisation regularly reviews policies and has taken on board that it needs to be progressive. It generally tries to respond to any shortcomings swiftly.

Severely understaffed, negative atmosphere

I started at Epsom hospital few months ago with lots of energy but feeling drained already. My line manager doesn't have much time to see me or to support me, my new colleagues are busy doing their things. There is a lot of negative attitude that spreads quickly and is not healthy. Working here is very stressful.

Pros

Some colleagues are nice, you gain experience of working for a large organisation

Cons

Severely understaffed in alll departments, stressful, not enough support for new starters

Good

The staff are easy to get a long with, management is very helpful, the hardest part of the job that it can get very stressful as A&E Gets busy throughout the day as you're having to multitask a lot

Stressful but rewarding.

Management is poor but some people you meet and the experiences are worth while. Helping people as a job is very rewarding. 0 Hour contracts are not that secure either, they can get rid of you without a notice but if you want to leave you need to give them a week advance.

Always delivering World Class Cae

I have learnt so much about Cardiology and it is an absolute pleasure coming into work to not only help others by providing World Class Care on behalf of the Trust, but to also learn new clinical work and information. I come into work and I also get a little education each day by understanding more and more about the Heart and Aortic Valves.

Great chance at progression

Whilst at the RD&E I was given an excellent opportunity. I started as an admin apprentice in January 2014 and by June 2014 I was a band 3 waiting list coordinator. I worked extremely hard to be noticed and the work paid off. In any work place you are not always going to agree with everyone's opinions and suggestions but it is extremely important that you remain professional at all times whilst at work and it is vital that you are able to compromise. The hardest part of this job was the ever increasing number of referrals our department was receiving but our capacity was staying the same. This resulted in patients waiting longer that they should of been for their procedures.

Pros

Progression

Cons

Capacity issue
