Health Care Assistant in York
With a health care you have to know and do vast amounts of jobs Which is really good However when you see domestics getting the same pay for a lot less work It makes me wonder why
supportive management and good team work
Supportive management, good flexibility and team work. Work in healthcare setting can be stressful and fast paced a lot of the time. But can also be rewarding.

Terrible Management Cronyism and Nepotism
Low wages = Low standards. Management make it up as they go along, stressing how we should all follow sops, whilst they break the rules to suit themselves, their whims, their corner cutting, and if staff try to follow correct procedures against their unethical wishes then they actually invent stories to get us into trouble, disciplinaries etc. The rhetoric is nauseating, the trust values are not followed. Supervisors and managers demonstrate blatant favoritism. They cultivate the culture of divided staff to use them against each other. The staff whose faces fit have things how they like it and newbies and those out of the clique are the dogs bodies. There is a deep culture of the abuse of power and of bullying. HR are a great let down, clearly biased in support of management, even when presented with hard evidence, so there is nowhere to go when treated unfairly. I would not recommend the place to anyone.

Helpful to get experience, could be improved
I went into the job with one thing on my mind - getting experience in a practical setting, especially for an application in further education. What I've learnt is that I enjoy what I get to do, but also that there are more minor problems with the running of the hospital than simply workload. Problems that have not impacted the quality of the work done, per say, but that, if corrected, would bring significant improvement to the efficiency of the running of the hospital.

Rewarding - however, managers & HR corrupt
I loved working for the NHS - it is rewarding and enjoyable and reasonably paid. It is unfortunate that I experienced numerous managers that were difficult to work for. HR tend to side with the managers on all occasions.
Overall I would return as it is just a few people that spoiled the experience. Parking is an issue - you are unable to apply for a work parking permit in your first few years & surrounding parking is competitive.
