Productive and fun place to be . I work with the best team in the hospital, Urology short stay

Working with uclh is one of the best decisions I made. The staff’s are competent and always striving to improve. The teamwork is what I love most about my ward. There is always opportunities to improve yourself through study days, short courses, etc.


Best team


Shortage of staff and having to cover other wards

Bad management

Management is 0 in this hospital. There is no equal opportunity, place full of phillipinos. Where is the equal opportunity they preach. Many managers roaming around doing nothing. Structure needs to be looked into.

You are encouraged to advanced in ur career

There is open career progression. The work environment is very good.Overtime is not paid. However agencies run for extra shifts. If a ward is short of staff the nursing agencies run the shift. E.g. there is bank shift available for any permanent who needs extra pay. Paid by the agency running the bank shift. That is not NHS. This agency supply wards that are short of staff.


No free lunch

Overall good for progression and opportunities. Have to work hard. Environment is fast paced so have to keep on top of workload which can be stressful at times. Managers are supportive.

Stressful but rewarding job

I was initially very excited to work at UCLH and the people whom I worked with are friends for life. However, this is ruined by management who have favorites and there is no room for progression.


Alot of places to eat, great team

Great place to work

UCLH has extremely high standards in a work ethic/culture. I found the standards they were purported to have were higher than any other hospital I worked for in Inner and greater London. It was a pleasure to work there and I would do so at any time.


Great workplace


Sometimes high pressure

Great place to work and a supportive team

Working in a Children and Adolescents department, I work with a supportive team, it's hard in this day and age to actually have a team who are genuine and have your best interest. The team are dynamic, fun, hard working, supportive and are resilient to change.

Not a good Atmosphere. Some bullying.

It is sometime since I worked at UCLH but there are far too many managers and the work is not fairly distributed. I worked in administration. On the plus side helping patients and their families gave me a sense of satisfaction fulfilment.


Too many managers

A very dinamic place

I really enjoyed to work there. My colleagues were brilliant with a good team spirit, I had so many opportunities to learn and to grow as a professional. I was appreciated for my work. When I went through tough times on a personal level I was given the appropriate support.


Flexibility and support


Working only office hours

fun workplace

Assist patients with their mails, attend group meeting. Its a fast working pace workplace, it can get very busy. I helped go for their meetings. The management was very strick, eveyone had their appointment to attend, to see a docotor, or get help to explain about the care they will be recieving on the day.

Enjoyable workplace with a balanced work life.

There is no typical day, as everyday can be very different and present new challenges. I have learned to be able to solve and change and adapt to new situations arising. Management is very kind and helpful in almost all matters. The workplace is very inclusive and multicultural which would allow anyone from and race, religion or place feel very welcome. Hardest part of the job would be the wait times in between different tasks in clinic which could get tiresome. The most enjoyable aspect is the direct effect our trials have on patient lives which are helping and making a difference to peoples lives.

Interesting journey

Never really worked in the public sector, in particular - the NHS. Was very different travelling to the city and time has literally flown by. Enjoyed learning about client engagement and a different perspective of values in a hospital environment.
