Reviews about Pay & benefits for Healthcare Assistant at NHS

Draining and disappointing

Pay is abysmal. Pay cuts have become a joke. Worked 75 hours one week as we was short staffed and after tax picked up the most shocking wage. Not enough to pay rent or bills so looking elsewhere now. It’s not a reliable source of income anymore, the pay is disgraceful. You put your time effort energy into the work and get nothing back. I have never felt so unappreciated in any job I have ever had before. For what you have to do and what you are paid simply doesn’t correspond fairly. It’s all wrong and management don’t care aslong as they have their £45,000 a year salary and their pay rises they do not care about anyone else. I have witnessed managers have their own offices decorated with expensive furniture and have plush designer carpets fitted using the departments budget. It’s all so wrong at the moment & they’ll always get away with it. Toxic environment and corrupt management who all stick together
