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

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.

Long service sadly ended in poor mental health. Learned loads, had a passion for my craft. Some supportive co-workers , some bullying. Poor and good management. Hardest part-risk of litigation. Satisfying job.

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
The Whole Quality & Safety Team were a joy to work with. They made me feel welcome and a part of the team. Within the my time at the hospital I did varies of things, Such as Photo-copying,Filing,Printing, Producing documents and Entering Data onto spread sheets.
I have learnt to develop the skills and knowledge within therapy work, I most enjoy the patient developing independent skills. The hardest part of my job is motivating patients who do not wish to be independent.
