    Former Employee - Project Support Officer in Edinburgh, Scotland

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at NHS full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Able to enact positive change

    Cons

    Poor training opportunities, lack of standardised training - clinical colleagues end up logging data incorrectly and blame is laid upon admin/project support, managers resistant to change or unwilling to hear about problems/have selective hearing, lack of managerial contact, job description did not demonstrate that full administrative support (i.e. booking in patients, covering full correspondence). No funding to do the work you want to do - due to managerial shortcomings. Poor structure within teams,, processes of change are slow - first month of work had no systems or even a login so was unable to hit the ground running.
