Don't work here!
Outpatient Management don't care about staff, awful place to work. No work/life balance, you work 8-6, no choice, you never see outpatient manager on the floor when there are problems, but is quick to send emails or gets minions to do their dirty work, instead of face to face contact. No way to progress from band 2, you get run ragged as always short staffed. Constantly chasing notes and handing them to doctors who are always grumpy and take it out on you. Loading trollies with clinic notes and weighing patients. That's pretty much it, unless you take bloods then that's the only highlight

Great place to work and learn
After working here for some time, this trust gives you some really good benefits and learning opportunities. Especially for those wanting to undertake further learning into Nursing and other healthcare roles. Typical day at work for a HCA involves assisting patients with all daily living activities, such as washing and dressing. I help at meal times to those who need extra help with eating their food, for example patients with severe learning disabilities or dementia. I assist patients with their mobility, for those who need extra assistance with walking frames and other mobility aids. I help with toileting, whether it is walking with a patient to the bathroom or assist in transferring them to a commode or bedpan. On many occasions during the day I am responsible for keeping the ward and patient bed areas clean and tidy. This involves making beds neatly and sterilising equipment regularly, such as beds, lockers, tables, etc., along with other equipment such as observation and ECG machines that may have been used. Throughout day and night shifts, I regularly have to perform observations on all patients; this includes taking blood pressure, temperature, recording respiration, oxygen levels, heart rate and blood sugar. I am also responsible for maintaining the best possible pressure area care for patients who are unable to move around independently. I am responsible for documenting all tasks that I perform throughout the day in patient’s notes and informing my colleagues about any matters I am concerned about or if I have any questions to ask.
The hardest part of the job, is moving patients to other wards, and trying to keep on top of a lot of jobs at once and prioritising everything. But if you keep a calm approach, even the hardest parts of the day can be enjoyable, especially when you have a good team of staff around you to help at any time.
