Featured NHS job reviews

  • Best thing

    Making a real difference to patients and their families. If I have a good day, I’ll get to spend lots of time with my patients, do things like wash their hair, make them feel cared for etc. I’ll feel like I’m giving treatments that are making people better and see improvements in someone’s health. I’ll get on well with my team including doctors and other AHP’s. When you have a good day you really really love this job.

    Worst thing

    Feeling burnt out due to poor staffing levels and skill mix. Feeling guilty about not having the time to give good care to patients. Sometimes you are so busy you miss things and feel so guilty, but there is nothing you could have done differently because of factors outside of your control like staffing levels. Not always getting breaks, we are supposed to take two half hour breaks on a 12 hour shift, most days I’ll just have one 20 minute break in the morning. Always leaving an hour late. Having a poor work like balance, this job becomes your life.

    Deputy sister, March 2021

    • Manages people
    • £16.04 per hour
    • 25 or older
    • More than 3 years experience
  • Best thing

    Being able to talk to different people on a daily basis.
    Attending the helipad and feeling like part of an elite team.
    Walking and maintaining a good level of fitness.
    Banter with other portering colleagues.
    Feeling like you are helping people.

    Worst thing

    Seeing some not very things stuff including bad patients off the helicopter, mortuary jobs (child and adult) very sick patients.

    Covid has been a massive stress and we have seen more death than my 2 years combined working there beforehand.

    Aggressive and intimidating patients, I have been assaulted twice in 3 years.

    Sometimes being made to feel worthless by higher members of staff

    Porter, March 2021

    • £18,000 per year, working a 40 hour week
    • 21–24 years old
    • 1–3 years experience
  • Best thing

    Very satisfying work. Good job if you like people. Well resourced. Good company ethos. Enormous camaraderie...even internationally!

    Worst thing

    Exorbitant paperwork. Low staff numbers that are deemed safe. Learning highly skilled jobs but not being financially rewarded for taking on extended role. Stress. Physically very demanding. Diminishes own health (working nights, going without meals, drinking too little). Genuine risk to your own health...e.g. TB, COVID etc

    Nurse, December 2020

    • £26,000 per year, working a 35 hour week
    • 25 or older
    • More than 3 years experience
  • Best thing

    I enjoy helping and caring for most people that are in my care, my colleagues are a great inspiration to me on stressful shifts

    Worst thing

    Having rude, demanding patients with no right to reply, having far to heavy workload for the staffing levels at times with higher management, in my opinion, having little understanding of what really happens on the Shop floor, and no hope of a pay rise for such a stressful job especially in these unprecedented times!
