I have been working at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board full-time for more than 10 years
Pros – The staff delivering treatment really care and give beyond the call of duty. They always do their best, although stretched to the limit
Cons – Staff are over-worked, most areas are under-staffed and they are not supported by management. Morale is at an all time low and the Health Board are dis-investing in specialist staff, down banding staff and placing them of pay protection / pay freeze for up to 10 years. Staff are leaving in their droves. Highly specialised staff are being asked not to use their excellent skills as the Trust can't afford to pay them their correct banding.
Previously excellent services are suffering because of this dis-investment
Advice to Senior Management – Decrease the management tiers and invest in putting more clinical staff where it counts, adhere to AFC bandings and pay the staff what they deserve, thus maintaining the excellent services available to patients
If managers cared about patients as much as the clinical staff do they would agree that things need to change
Put patients first instead of finances and start looking at the NHS as a whole instead of little pockets. Patients deserve this and so do the hard working and dedicated staff
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board part-time for more than a year
Pros – None, except that it is a new building
Cons – The management of the nurses leaves a lot to be desired. Great deal of chit chat about private matters that as a patient I did not want to hear. Nurses were saying some serious stuff about their manager.
Advice to Senior Management – Get into this unit and clean up.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
