I have been working at NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

At best, most people are people focused and care about the NHS, at worst, the internal politics is like wading through treacle and when nurses and GP's should be putting bandages on people, they are all in IT meetings and laying down the law. If only they themselves conformed to the concept of the patient driven service.

Cons

Where do you start, a lot of people want to work in the NHS as they are dependent on others and for some reason go off sick and awful lot. The concept of the patient driven service is a myth and the government lets down people very badly with its post code lottery.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand the longitude and latitude of your own roles....you do not know anything about computing and and you may be talking with Masters an Phd qualified individuals with 20 years + experience. Specify your requirements and go do your own job. Harsh, but true.

    Healthcare based on quantity, not quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time shadowing employees so that you actually understand what they do for a living, talk with them, listen to them, heed them.

    Pros

    - Will provide you with extra hours and overtime should you want them
    - Helps people in the community
    - Great benefits
    - Great Team Work Ethic in lower level staff

    Cons

    - No acceptance from Senior managers that Numbers aren't key
    - Hard and Long Hours
    - Little and No Support from Senior teams, only from your close workmates

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rethink your strategies and treat patients and staff with respect. Mutual respect could achieve numbers like you obviously want; where your current workings won't.
