I worked as a psychology placement student in the Head Injury Therapy Unit in Frenchay. The team were lovely, all very supportive and easy to talk to. I was not paid a wage for my time there, it was entirely voluntary. I didn't drive to commute but I don't believe they would have covered any work-related driving costs had I done so, as I was a placement student. The team were creative in coming up with new activities for patients to take part in, such as gardening in the ecotherapy garden. There were frequently shared lunches with the team which was a nice opportunity to catch up and try one another's cooking. We did a couple of activities together such as bowling and trialling an ecotherapy session with an external establishment. These were great fun. I would recommend working there.
Good job for security during covid. Unfortunately there is a bullying culture here, including people with special needs. I have never been somewhere where I have been so badly treated. High turn over of staff so always jobs available. No progression really unless you move to another area of the hospital. Management lack professionalism, equality and integrity. No flexibility and COVID precautions poor.
Learning and research development team
Nei reparti amministrativi, si può trovare un ambiente di lavoro tranquillo, ma attivo, nel quale è semplice organizzare il carico di lavoro secondo i propri ritmi pur rispettando le scadenze assegnate.
I worked in North Bristol NHS trust from 2003. This trust has taken an active role in my personal and professional development. I have started in NBT as a band 5 Theatre Practitioner and with the support and encouragement of line managers and senior managers I have made my way up to a Band 7 Clinical co ordinator. During my period in NBT i have gained clinical and managerial experience. If I get a chance to work for the trust again I will happily accept the role.
Management have no care whatsoever for patients. Thank goodness for doctors and nurses. The Trust is Well known as having a 'management bullying culture'. Middle management regularly upgraded on pay scale yet job specification unchanged. High sickness rates of clerical and junior staff, with stress, anxiety related issues
Extremely poor management
Unfortunately during the past 4 years of working within the Brunel Building, I have learnt how poor the communication between the employees and management truly is. And this is a major issue particularly on the wards, so many frustrated staff who are willing to talk about their problems but never anyone to talk to who they feel they can trust and is willing to do anything about it to help change the circumstances (which most of the complaints I’ve heard are fixable) Management do not make time to get to know their employees and team which is a BIG problem, not enough praise towards the staff, continuous amounts of pressure instead. Really big shame because there is soo much potential in a lot of my colleagues and their lights are fading fast. Expect to walk around 20,000+ steps per day. Unmotivated colleagues. Flexible hours if willing to work long shifts. Endless amounts of pressure. Expected to take on more than your role due to constant short staffing. Too many management, too many different rules. A lot of staff gossip and school like behaviour. Great weekend, bank holiday and night shift rate. Discounts on various restaurants.
Shifts are flexible, Opportunities to rotate around the hospital in various roles
Poor management, lack of common sense, lack of everyday equipment, a lot of walking
Worked here for a few years both under a fixed contract and then later as bank staff. Fixed contact was fixed pay,never finished ontime, couldn't claim overtime. Bank, flexible but most staff on wards treated bank staff terrible.
Night pay and weekend pay
Hours and treatment by some other staff
Nice place to work if you have the information you need. I have managed to understand quite a lot asking, looking and try to understand how the system might work. The hardest part of my job is to do other people's job. The most enjoyable part is that my working hours are flexible. I normally start at a specific time every morning, some days i have to stay a bit later to finish what i have to do. There are some days that i can leave earlier.
