Depending on where your working, staff members often move in clicks which sometimes creates a bad working atmosphere. Especially as a young person, lots of nurses talk down to you when giving instructions. There's lots to learn with regards to knowledge and systems which is hard at first but once you learn bits you feel more confident like you would in any job role. Patients are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Enjoyed the variety of work practice and comraderie amongst most.of theatre colleagues .there was some position status recognition and authority was thrived upon and showed at times .but overall a good mix and positve instructional assistance was seen .
Free uniforms (scrubs) tea coffee.etc
typical day - depressing learnt - a great deal regarding medical terminology & medical conditions management - needs work workplace culture - stressed not enough staff hardest part of job - connecting with manager as she was also a member of the clinical staff Easiest - connecting with patients & family
Patient mostly happy with the care provided which could be improved even by sufffient staffing level, staffing has reduced and sometime compromise especially in winter when more patients are expected.rest of facilities are good .
The NHS is a very rewarding business to work in but some aspects can be quite challenging due to there being deadlines on tasks. The most difficult part of the job can be the pressure we are under to complete tasks to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Good benefits, solid contract hours, professional relationships
Added pressure, loss of jobs
While working within the Hospital I was first for a week working on the Physiotherapy Department on reception, signing patients in for their appointments, booking new appointments, answering the telephone. After the first week I was moved to Occupational Therapy department where my main job was Date Entry, I also answered the phones and taking messages for the Personal Secretary for the Occupational Therapy Manager. Taking tea and coffee orders from delegates for meetings, photocopying, filing and other jobs for other departments
A typical day at work involved carrying out initial interviews, including risk assessments, collaborating aims and goals with service users, treatment planning and evaluation. Whilst on placement, I had gained the opportunity to develop my skills within a range of areas, such as; carrying out initial assessments, collaborating aims and goals with service users, treatment planning and when liaising with Multi Disciplinary Team. No issues were identified with the management within the trust I thought that the trust could have improved on their ability to employ a mixture of individuals from different cultural back grounds. I thought that the hardest part of the job was having to cope with the demands of my hours of work as I had to commute 5 days a week from a long distance.. I enjoyed meeting different patients form all walks of life and found it rewarding when I was able to apply the skill I had gained whilst contributing towards, making a difference within individual lives.
Excellent learning opportunities.
Having to commute from a far distance and poor bus route.
the staff are wonderful here, they are under extreme pressures and are working hard to achieve care for their local population. Once the senior executives are appointed im sure this hospital begin delivering the key targets
Historically this trust has had its share of bad press and sometimes rightly so. But changes are happening now that are making this organisation an enjoyable place to work. New ideas and innovative ways of working are now encouraged. New initiatives to allow staff on the ground to really have their say, are happening. I have been here for a year and I am thoroughly enjoying this challenging role. The team are great and management are supportive and engaging.
Parking spaces are in short supply
The shift work was not for me. There was no set pattern or rota, could not plan for events/ days off etc. The staff team were nice.
Shift work with no set pattern
