They pay lab staff very badly compared with NHS
I have worked as a Mecical Lab Assistant for PHE for 7 years. The NHS staff who work alongside me are paid more and progress through their band. If you work for PHE you will never be paid more than they offered you at your interview. There is no progression whatever through the band. Even the NHS domestics are paid more than MLAs. At BMS level and above the pay differences are much larger. We constantly lose staff to the NHS and PHE have been urged to address this issue multiple times. They do not care.

Badly managed
Would not recommend. Previous ownership was a much nicer place to work for. Sadly not focused on patients but more focused on money and headlines. Shame.

Lovely people
Lovely people, but it's very old fashioned, stuffy suits and not a great atmosphere. Difficult to progress through the ranks but management really care about their staff wellbeing.
