NHS Grampian

Working for NHS Grampian was by far one of the best experiences I have experienced in health & social care. I learned a lot about different types of care with a variety of age groups and aliments. If your a high energy person who can work very well on their own but also with a team and love the unexpected then working for NHS is for you.

Pros

Very good pay

Cons

I had to leave due to the hours not being flexible enough for college.

An Expeirence

Always busy, hard going. Learned to keep on time, nice people to work with friendly staff. I wouldn't say there was a hardest part of the job i'd say it was all equally hard work. Being part of a time.

Busy and challenging

There are many tasks to do in a day for a staff nurse - administration of medications, providing personal care including maintaining skin integrity, wound dressings if required, offering advice and reassurance to the patient, handing over information in the form of clear and concise handwritten documentation and verbal handovers, liasing with patients, families, multidisciplinary teams and staff members, answering phones and queries and so on. I learned to be observant, patient, consistent and approachable. Hardworking team as with all other areas of the hospital. The time constraints and lack of staffing are the hardest parts of the job. Getting to know patients and seeing their journey through the healthcare system. Also knowing that you ve helped to aid their recovery as best you can.

Cons

Long hours

Every day is different

Working at Royal Cornhill is a brilliant experience the supervisors and co-workers are excellent. working in the wards or a member of the catering staff it challenged and learned me new skills everyday As a member of the catering staff learned me cooking skills I never had before I joined the service. The hardest part of the job is the staffing sometimes staff are left to man a whole kitchen or ward on there own which normally is a three man job. .

Pros

lovely staff and cafe with good prices for lunches

Cons

None

Good place to work

Daily routine starts with serving breakfast to the patients. After that cleaning and scrubbing of the department. Team is very supportive, management not so much. Job requires contact with various people\patients on daily basis, what may be challenging sometimes.

Productive and rewarding

The opportunity to help those that help the most vulnerable members of our society is what motivates me to go to work, but can also be one of the hardest parts about the job. Conversations have to be had very carefully and with a great deal of tact at times, especially when talking about the future workforce. I've learned a lot through this job, from how to work closely with clinicians to acheive mutually beneficial outcomes, to diplomacy in the office

Pros

job satisfaction and meeting people

Cons

stressful

Positively Challenging.

There was no typical day at work in the prison setting, there are various prison regimes which we need to respect and nursing patients has to be fitted around these strict daily routines. We medicate 4 x daily and try hard to fit in clinics around these very demanding times. The Clinic's we run are based on education, sexual health, Blood borne viruses, smoking cessation, health checks, wound care, diabetic care and chronic care. Mental health nurses and addiction nurses and much appreciated care from outside support services. Management in such a restricted area and at a time the prison was due to close was a challenge of its own, with such a shortage of experienced prison nurses put a marked strain on the already exhausted service and nurses. The hardest part of the job was working with bank nurses most had no Prison experience and were restricted to the clinical areas and required a great level of support and understanding. The ripple effect of this was demonstrated in patient dissatisfaction of the limited service we were trying to provide. Nurses were becoming very frustrated in the fact we could only provide the essentials and often clinics had to be cancelled at the last minute or withdrawn completely. The most enjoyable part of the job was making a difference, through all the chaos of these patients in custody I was able to gain trust and respect.

Pros

Life long learning

Cons

Working around strict regimes
