Its an interesting place to work, where the staffs know one another. The team spirit is also high among the staff.

It can be a very busy hospital to work as we are the only heart and Lung hospital in the rural part of London. There's a strong team.Work ethics among the staff is also high as well.

Pros

Good pay and conducive atmosphere

Cons

Poor public transport connection

It's fun to work here. Staff are cooperative.

RBHT is an hospital where I'll like to work over and over again if the opportunity comes. I enjoyed the experience I had with colleagues and patients. Overall, it's enjoyable working with RBHT.

Extreme bullying culture.ITU Royal Brompton

Absolutely appalling.As a senior staff nurse I witnessed the senior management systematically pick on individuals until they left.Or until they became so stressed they made an error.Then investigated and sacked. It was the worst place I worked in 30 years of ITU. The senior nurses should be ashamed of the school yard bully tactics. If your face fitted it was ok.

Pros

Excellent equipment.Lots to learn.Innovative surgery.

Cons

Bullying and sense of oppression.I hope it has improved

Great place to work

Work colleagues exceptional My problem was that zero hours contract resulted in zero hours, when I was ready to work 50 hours a week. I cant live without money to eat and pay my rent

Very busy, and a rewarding job at the end of the day.

Lovely place to work, Very accommodating, Very Knowledgeable team and all staff members work as a team. Fast paced and sometimes relax, flexible, Most of our students love it and apply for jobs after qualifying. Staff members have long service on the wards

A good workplace with lots of development opportunitites

I have worked at the Royal Brompton as a staff nurse for two and a half years. It's a fast paced environment with daily challenges but lots of development opportunities and the Trust offers a variety of classes and training days for all staff as well as funding for University programmes. However there is lack of efficient upper management in making quick decisions to problems that arise occasionally.

Pros

Development Opportunities, fast progression

Cons

Bad management

Bullying environment

As Bank staff I was subject of being treated unfairly when a trained nurse I was working with made a massive blunder whilst on duty, rather than her/the trained nurse admit her mistake she was quick to pass the blame onto me to take the fall. As bank staff I didn’t have a leg to stand on as I was quickly dismissed; the ward sisters were extremely unsupportive & so was the “Bank” nurse in charge of booking my shifts, rather than help & offer me advice they wanted the wanted me out & never be allowed back again, due to the seriousness of the blunder that was made by the trained member of staff. It completely ruined any hopes that I had to join the trust as permanent staff in the future due to the seriousness of the lies that had been forced onto me, just so that the trained nurse was “off the hook” as I was used as the bait, while her job was safe, I lost my only source of income at that time, as I was told “I’m only bank” as if I didn’t matter. I was treated very unfairly & they didn’t want me to cause any “Fuss”; so it was quickly kept hush hush with my clean professional reputation was left in tatters. As for me there was no going back, if your face doesn’t fit then your out the door. The staff were clicky & unfriendly & rude to bank staff. In hindsight it was a good thing I left the trust, but not under the circumstances that I was pushed out the door just so the trust can keep it’s squeeky clean reputation like destroying mine in the process.

Pros

Leaving

Cons

As above

Cons

Racism, fraud, harassment and bullying is common place

An extremely enjoyable contract

Based at Harefield hospital rather than in Chelsea but with excellent communication between sites. Excellent communication with senior Finance management based in Chelsea. In the main a smooth running operation at Harefield for which I was responsible. All year end processes went extremely smoothly. Major changes established in Fixed Asset Accounting.

Pros

Excellent relationships established with managers and staff.

Cons

None

Cons

Good starting location for an ICU nursing career

Interesting case-mix to develop individual skills in ICU. When supported, new nurses get upskilled effectively. Often lacking managerial vision and support to lower grade nurses, frequently operating on a 'sink-or-swim' mode by senior staff.

Pros

Learning opportunities

Cons

Hard work and intensity can hinder progression
