    I worked at NHS Management full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good for management. Hours are flexible with ability to do some work from home. My co-workers were awesome and so were most of the staff I supervised.

    Cons

    Pay for DSPs is horrible and raises are non-existent. Not much opportunity for advancement. When DSPs call off and coverage can't be found, then I had to go in and work (my boss was not helpful when I ran into this problem, which was often). Turn over rate for DSP is high so we had to do interviews almost every month. Being on-call means you have no life outside of work because you get phone calls ALL the time. Company (or maybe just my boss) was too focused on doing disciplinary actions.

    Advice to Management

    Alternate the on-call on weekdays as well as weekends. Focus on coaching and improving staff instead of disciplining. Regular raises will improve turn-over rate.

    I have been working at NHS Management full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    meet people from various backgrounds inherent work / job satisfaction - for the people, not for the pay or management

    Cons

    Contrary to popular belief - doctors in the NHS are poorly paid. If the same doctors worked elsewhere they would be paid more - USA / Australia / Germany are examples. The work is getting harder but support from management is getting lesser / and so is the pay. There is no forward thinking, only cutting costs - but sweling the ranks of hapless middle managers who tick boxes. Money down the drain.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the box ticking. If the NHS was owned by shareholders it would have been consigned to history a long time ago. We do not live in police or communist state. Big Brother - time for you to take note.
