    I worked at BMI Healthcare part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Line manager was great.

    Cons

    Abysmal organisation at London Independent Hospital and communication although small hospital. Patient admin staff came and left every other work. Staff turnover due to bad management and no training.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear with staff from beginning, pay them when due!

    I have been working at BMI Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay, flexible shifts, good people.

    Cons

    Time planning - non-clinical members of staff working 'core' hours Monday to Friday regularly overbook operating lists and despite regular meetings to plan upcoming lists seem to ignore any concerns 'as it's got to get done sometime'. Pay disparity - hiring new staff on higher pay and not entertaining the possibility of bringing your older loyal staff up to the same level. This has seen several staff leave for... this reason alone. Timecard system - massively skewed in the company's favour - rounding times to the nearest 15 minutes is unfair, automatic deductions for breaks that cannot be taken.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff more - reward staff for their efforts. Imagine how undervalued you must feel if after 10years+ loyal service as an experienced member of staff a newly qualified member of staff with no experience is hired on a higher salary whilst you have to manage and train them? Better incentivise people to work more - why would I want to give up a day off for TOIL when you'd have to pay an agency worker... double my salary to cover the same shift?
