I love my job at the Outpatient

I love my job, very supportive and positive environment everyone is willing to help you, when struggling. The only downside is the pay and no advancement in career but you are determined you could make your up.

Horrible Ward

The staff were horrible and had a reputation. Leadership turned a blind eye to clear bullying and belittling. Certain members of staff made the ward tiresome for everyone. The patients were lovely but overall not an enjoyable experience.

Share your experience to help others

Was a newly qualified agency worker. PRUH is a great place to work but with the support you need.

Wanted to be permanent but not given the opportunity. Having a good supervisor will help you get all the support you need but having one that does not have your interest at heart, then making you look stupid in the presence of the manager will be their target. If the manager cannot use their professional judgement too and just considering the acts and talks of your supervisor against you, then there will be no future for you in that organisation.

Productive and hard work

Learning new things everyday. A lot of filing, photocopying, requesting notes, sending letters to patients and GPs. Brilliant management, very helpful.

During my employment with Sainsbury’s I found the customer service industry both challenging and rewarding. I feel I had a clear understanding about the products and services offered and was able to maintain a neutral relationship with customers. It was not uncommon for me to interact with aggravated customers and it was vital for me to stay calm, communicate effectively and try to make the experience a positive one.

Very independent

The volunteer role has the ability to be a lonely one. The nurses don't have time to guide you through everything as naturally they are very busy. Being on the dementia ward, it can smell a bit but it is a hospital so that it is to be expected.


No free lunch

Work at hospital

My day role working at the hospital as mental health support worker has equipped me to gain the skills at knowledge working at an acute ward. I have learnt to be patient and professional at my workplace and acknowledge the clients with respect. I have been given the opportunity to work in a diverse background with clients from different cultural background.

Lack of morale

A typical day does not exist in Main Theatres, Maternity and Accident and Emergency which are the 3 areas I cover. I have learnt the internal politics of the workings of the PRUH. It has been very negative in the last 5 to 10 years. Management is poor at some levels but they are dictated to which then cascades down to frontline staff. My co-workers are mostly excellent team players and very skilled in anaesthetics,surgery and recovery. Even if they are tired through working 12hr shifts back to back there is always a smile on their faces. I would say the hardest part of the job is facing trauma patients, procedures which dont go to plan (especially delivering stillborn babies). But at the end of the day, we all know that we have cared for someone with passion even if we feel absolutely exhausted, hungry, enduring our own aches and pains.


Good Salaries for the higher grades of staff, excellent pension scheme, organisation of the Operating Lists and managing any changes to the List.


Long hours, regularly no breaks or very delayed breaks, some unapproachable members of the multi disciplinary team, being hit, shouted at and spat on by patients, mandatory training often cancelled due to busy lists or shortage of staff.
