Worked here 22 years. Secure employment, decent pension, good annual leave days. Overtime a constant, always available due to being understaffed consistantly


Stressful, frustrating

Do not work here.

I worked here in the radiology department. I would not consider ever working here again. The staff are rude, unapproachable and are very unhelpful. There is a lot of unprofessional practice that is ignored by management. I did not feel valued as a member of staff. The turn-over of staff in this department is high, leaving mid yorkshire with a damaged reputation.




Management, Rude unhelpful unfriendly staff

Portsmouth hospital trust

Portsmouth Hospital Trust is an ok place to work. Decent facilities for staff but more effort needs to be taken towards staff well being. Only wanting to move on for personal development

Great place to work

I worked here for 14 years in Radiology and loved it, you can't wish to work with a nicer team, the equipment is good too compared to other places. The pay is excellent. Hours can be long and the place is busy like most NHS hospitals. You will also cover multiple sites and urgent care centres. Left for career reasons but would recommend to anyone.

Friendly staff, overall clean hospital, new equipment.

I been working in Radiology Department for 14 years . Overall view: clean hospital, new equipment , very friendly , polite and experienced staff, booking the procedure quite quick. Professional staff employed. Patients quiet difficult in this area . A bit problem with the PACS system after updating. General very clean hospital. Mostly staff very friendly. I wish to admins staff been little more friendly and professional. Short staff of porters and not enough chair's to transport patients from the ward to take them for a procedure. Need to be improved.


Extra hours and working in weekend's

Fulfilling job but demands on NHS make it difficult

Good hospital to work in. Opportunity for career development. Problems more to do with how NHS is run and government targets rather than the hospital itself.

Locum work done

As a locum i was welcomed very early on into my placement and blended into the work culture quickly. The hospital has teaching facilities and i also had the opportunity to partake in this.

Love my job and the values of the NHS

I love being part of a world wide known company, the NHS. Working in such a fast paced ever changing environment is something I thrive on. Being a senior radiographer in a major trauma centre I am faced with new challenges and demands while constantly learning on a daily basis. I currently rotate through A & E, general, theatre and fluoroscopy.

Highly professional satisfying job

Very busy demanding department. Very rewarding working with the patients from all walks in life, suffering many different illnesses etc. Worked doing management duties, requiring specialised skills, but very rewarding. Hardest part of the job entailed long shifts, heavy demanding work. Also,having to overcome some sadness at times. The enjoyable part of the job was giving something to particular patients and making their day, depending on the nature of events.


Very rewarding


Long hours and heavy work

Typical day, come to work , don't stop working, no time to sit down. Go home, eat sleep repeat. Blame culture and low salary to work ratio. Needs better management.

Good working environment

I have been at my current hospital for over 15years, my post has altered over the years, but I have worked mainly outside normal working hours, I have been extremly happy and have, for the last few years enjoyed an almost perfect work life balance, doing the job I love , with people I enjoy working with ,I have kept up to date with changes and hopefully have honed my skills, and it is only changes within the trust that have rendered me redundant, our managers have always been approachable, accessable and reasonable, and above all flexable


Good work/life balance

Prestigious Institution

Great environment for a a junior radiographer, especially the transition from a newly qualified radiographer to a confident individual. It is a very large department that treats a variety of sites, this has given me the chance to learn many new techniques and deal with a variety of patients. Had the oppurtunity to act as a mentor to students. I enjoyed working with the patients the most and have enjoyed working with the staff here.


Great learning department


Working hours, shifts can range from 7:45 to 20:00
