Good working team, effective working environment.
I worked for the NHS for a very short period - in a mental assessment unit. I was only in the position for 3 weeks. The reason for leaving was that the shifts were 15 hours with an hours travel each way and as a single parent I was unable to continue with my employment. In this short time I did all aspects of a nursing assistant role, personal care for the patients, taking notes and observations. I took blood pressure and hate rate records bed making and assisting at meal times. The other staff members were easy to work with and very helpful.
Pros
Free lunches
Cons
not enough training given.

Some days are good, some not so good.
I work as a Bank HCA at N&N hospital, and although the flexibility has its benefits (I am studying a degree as well), it also has negative aspects. The training is good initially, but it's left to yourself to obtain further training, which isn't always easy. Some ward staff are lovely, but some treat you like you are the lowest of lows, because you are 'bank' staff. They talk to you in a way that you are a child and do not know what you are doing. Also in a rude way. It can be difficult entering a ward with staff who all know each other well. I enjoy when there are other bank staff, so I have someome who talks to me. It depends where you work to if you will enjoy your shift. My favourite parts are when I get to have long conversations with patients and get to know them. I enjoy helping others, so for me the patients make my job enjoyable!
Pros
Free uniform x2, flexibility, get to choose where you work, satisfaction of helping someone. Night shifts pay well
Cons
Staff on some wards. Lack of updated training.
