      Pros

      They included in the nhs! But shouldn't be! No care at all

      Cons

      Bullying is a huge culture within organisation, people in Upper management are the worst, led by non clinical managers who have no understanding of blood use! Many units disposed of and kept quiet, donor carers are anybody they feel they can train with no formal qualifications such as NVQ's or care quality??? As are management who if you were there in the beginning get promoted!! Huge gaps in budgets with no regard to money spent - look at store rooms!!!! Culture is worst seen in any company
