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

Excellent job security

Great organization with excellent job security.Each day gave me an opportunity to learn something new in the field of medicine.Patients experienced high wait times. However, staff did try their best to alleviate this challenge by going above and beyond to ensure patient satisfaction.

supportive management

My role can be fast-paced and quite stressful, however, I am lucky to have a very supportive supervisor and manager.I am able to work from home when needed.

Rewarding but stressful

There is no surprise working within the NHS can be stressful with staff shortages and minimum resources, however, it is a rewarding job with a lot of opportunities to progress. Nursing can lead you to many different avenues, ward nursing is not the only option.

Nhs

The NHS on a whole runs a great service for the UK to be able to use. Yes, it’s not perfect, however staff like myself give them out all and are passionate about the jobs we do.

Poorly under paid and unappreciated

Management don't care about staffThere is alot of hierarchy in the nhs rde You are worth nothing and always looked down on. Pay is unfair. Health care assistant gets paid same as a cleaner and postman. Even though responsibilities and risks are alot higher. You get shouted at by nurses cause you ask them a question and its not there patient or you get blatantly ignored. They stop and look at you then turn around and walk away. They pretend you aren't there even when they are stood in the way. When you go and complain Management just throw it under the carpet and don't bother taking it any further.

Caring and collaborative staff genuinely caring for patients

Staff generally are incredibly dedicated to their job role and collaborative across the MDT. Great opportunity for learning new skills and exposure to such a variety of clinical presentation. Rotations are good and varied as well as opportunity to progress quickly. Some great networking also to further progress development.

Pros

Great development/learning

Responsibilities

Reasonable place to work. Uniform provided, good vehicles. Long lead in time from interview to placement with lots of duplication of personal information required. Wages too low considering the fact that the driver has to deal with patients in the mental health system. Office staff are paid more.

Cons

Wages should be better.

Excellent colleagues

I enjoyed going to work very much in spite of long hours, mainly due to my colleagues and a manager who listened. There were opportunities for overtime and some flexibility with shifts; as a job one felt that one was making a contribution during the pandemic .

Horrible

Horrible place to work, bullying culture. Lots of room for progression but jobs are given based on who you know not what you know. Staff are not appreciated at all, never praised when doing well but management are quick to point fingers when things not so good.

Pros

good annual leave after a few years. good pension

Cons

Overworked. Underpaid
Was this review helpful?

Underpaid and under recognised job

As a porter you do more important and risk things but the culture around NHS is like just nurses and doctors exist. Most of the time your work is not recognised and your work with short staff and the payment is just balanced by the unsociable hours and weekends and nights. But the amount of tasks that you do daily ar far more vast than people would expect

Pros

Stability, helping others

Cons

Incredible wrong balance on rota/life, no progression, working in an environment that has no cultural progression and room for improvement.

Good in comparison to other NHS trusts

A little behind the times, and needing some investment in general, but working for NHS Borders is good in comparison to many NHS trusts I have worked for previously. The healthboard isnt huge and so you do get to know a lot of people, and the various services. People are generally friendly and want to do a good job. Management are okay, they want to be collaborative with their workforces, whether this works in reality I am unsure.

Pros

Good career prospects if you work hard

Cons

The finance team are TERRIBLE. If you have any issues with your wages, takes forever for them to sort it

Good

Work is fast paced but not over pressured. Manager is brilliant but nhs pay isn’t the best. Colleagues are generally nice and helpful, patients are lovely.

Pros

Good manager

Cons

Not the best pay

Avoid. Bullying is rife

Bullying by senior staff is rife. The helpline is now managed externally which may help with reporting of incidents and issues but until good managers who do not micromanage, intimidate staff and withhold training are in place, there will not be an inclusive and nurturing environment.Pay is good and there are plenty of NHS discounts from many companies available on production of your work ID.
