It was a good place to work.But they used to send for floating alot around in different departments where i have never worked and there had been days where i was the only experienced staff among others , which became too challenging and i felt as if my PIN is being compromised despite of the fact that i am giving my best.
Good place to work.
Travelling was an issue, low staff
No care for staff not valued no progression. Work hard while your seniors sit all day on what's app. Poor care bullying culture throughout hospital.ignored by seniors , and higher. Dont get I'll as frowned upon and punished for it. Discriminatory culture
The Clinical Administration department provides the audio transcription of Consultant letters and the Medical Secretarial support. As a team they work incredibly hard to deliver an efficient service for patients and Consultants in often stressful and demanding situations. The success of the department is entirely due to the dedicated staff and the team spirit who support one another in this demanding environment. However the Manager is wholly unsupportive of the team, leads by fear and bullying and has created an unhealthy environment where staff feel undervalued and unappreciated for all their hard work. Staffing is being reduced but pressure to maintain targets and deadlines is burdened on remaining team members. staff morale is low with an oppressive environment entirely created by the Manager. Her poor performance at staff welfare and wellbeing should be seriously assessed and monitored as she is a poor advocate for Princess Alexandra Hospitals values and detrimental to all the people past, present and future who work in this department.
I joined PAH in January 2019 in HR. Since working here I have been welcomed warmly, built great relationships with the team and wards and have been given the training needed to perform my job well. There are great opportunities for progression and new ideas are always welcomed and listened to.
Good opportunity to learn end to end cycle of your job, as one person will be doing all the work in the place of two people. No work life balance, work flexibility one laptop for 10 staffs, no update IT systems, no work from home option. No stationery or proper desk provided for the employee, employees need to bring their own stationery to do the work. Information from the HR is misleading about the work.
Opportunity to learn
No work flexibility and no appropriate resource to complete the work
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust?
Start 7.30am, could be floating amongst wards, where employees who have worked there for years have their own ward. Learnt importance of cleanliness/spread of infections. Not able to get to know people due to floating wards. Management not approachable. Hardest part of job, working around doctors and nurses who just let things drop on the floor, forever picking up after them.. Enjoyable part, helping the patients and ensuring their area is kept to a high standard of cleanliness
High and Low dusting, hoovering, damp dusting. I learnt how important hi spec cleaning was in a highly sensitive and populated building. the work place is multicultured with everyone working together as a team. for me there was no hard part of the job. the most enjoyable part of the job was working with others and also communicating with patients and visitors
I work with the Cost Improvement Programme to support the Healthcare group to achieve the saving target agreed and to do this changes need to happen and services are reviewed to identify areas for improvement. When the analysis is done, discussed with teams and changes/improvements agreed then project plans and continuous support is provided to complete milestones/tasks to achieve changes planned; along this a continuous analysis is provided to measure improvement (PDSA) to embed and sustain changes to reduce costs and improve productivity. The Princess Alexandra Hospital has an open culture where ideas are listened and opportunities given to implement those ideas that are demonstrated to make a difference. Learning is part of the process and support is given to try new ways of working, which is the only way to know what works and get the new results we want to achieve. I enjoy everything I do, I take any challenge I am given or I identified and I work till the job is completed. NHS is going through a difficult financial position but this makes staff smarter and stronger in the way they work, who is passionate about getting things done has infinite opportunities to make the difference. I love my job but I am about to retire and looking for part time opportunities to keep providing my experience and enthusiasm in supporting organisations to achieve their goals.
Distance to travel to work
Worked for only a few months producing a video - Staff were friendly and helped us nicely - However, they could sometimes not reply fast enough and not get in contact for weeks although we were creating a video for them - Therefore it is understandable.
I have been an agency worker here for over 2 years now. The team is great but management not so. The hospital is in dept so funding is scares. The increasing patient numbers vs the falling staffing numbers puts great pressure on everyone.
