    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at NHS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Working with amazing talented caring people Working in difficult situations and getting the support after. Being able to be apart of things that are special and not everyone can say oh I’ve witnessed that

    Cons

    The money is rubbish not just as a healthcare but as a general. For the workload and the stressful environment and situations life or death it’s shocking what we are paid the hour. No abilities to progress in your job role they offer you the world in your interview but don’t fall for it because it will never ever happen I’ve been a band 2 for 6 years and I’m leaving due to lack of progression.

    Advice to Management

    Make your band 2 something more don’t let them leave and look for something else we know the nhs has no money but can there no be other ways to help those that want to progress.
