    Good working environment, work with a great team. Flexible shifts and hours. Good pension. Excellent work life balance.

    Do not know work pattern until the week before, due to last minute operations being booked.

    More control of bookings, you can say no to some things

    Pros

    We get great benefits, aside from free membership there's a nuffield reward scheme which allows you to get WOW points or discounts when shopping. The staff have been friendly overall and I feel well trained for the job. I am given flexible hours so can pick my own working week which has also been an advantage. Overall the clientele are nice and co-operative.

    Cons

    I personally don't want to go into sport or sales so there are few career advancements for me. As a receptionist the tasks can be a little repetitive as well however I imagine it is the same everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    The training for my role was goo however I would have appreciated training or an insight into the other roles to help me better understand what the responsibilities of other are.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere everyone woks together as a team from management to cleaning staff. All staff treated the same.

    Cons

    Not enough money spent on up to date it systems causing time wasted.

    Advice to Management

    For non clinical management a better understanding of how clinical excellence can be achieved at all times to make Nuffield health the no 1 private health provider.

    Pros

    My supervisors and managers are fantastic to work for, the staff are friendly, the environment is great, the hours are flexible

    Cons

    I am working as bank staff and I would love a permanent position. The hourly rate is not OK but I could do with a little bit more

    Advice to Management

    Not sure at the moment because I haven't been at the Nuffield for very long but my department seem very well organised although very busy so maybe recruit some more staff to help with the work load

    Pros

    Great team atmosphere your colleagues are your allies and assets - treat them well and you'll get on just fine. But in a job like this where people aren't always working there for the love of the job it's important you remember to keep everyone motivated.

    Cons

    Management can be poor at times and is offered when it is felt like it - rather than when it is needed. Asking for help is seen as a weakness and offering suggestions is seen, on occasion, as an attack.

    Advice to Management

    Start by looking at the root of the problem. The club is suffering and you need to start looking at the people to find out why. A business is only as strong as it's weakest team member and you are not supporting your team at all. It could be a fantastic place to work - but it is not supported as it needs to be. Nuffield have some great (sometimes brilliant) ideas but they never ever follow through or support their introduction. Start by looking at the bottom and work from there. Don't just keep adding more and more pressure when the staff can barely handle what pressure they have now.

    Pros

    I advice you to work there as they have a qualified management, motivated staff.

    Cons

    The scheduling was my only problem. However, I sat wit the management I this issue been solved

    Advice to Management

    To be more in touch directly with the nurses and see what their needs. Some times they have problems with their managers and this affect their work and then patients' satisfaction

    Pros

    Excellent company with fantastic values. Supportive management team. Joined-up healthcare with the focus on the patient., free gym membership, excellent training opportunities, small friendly an knowledgeable staff.

    Cons

    Need to balance high quality patient care with ensuring financial targets are met to put money back into the hospital. Being a small company the opportunities for promotion are more limited than in the NHS, but this is compensated for by the working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Consider salary review for all staff

    Pros

    I started as a healthcare assistant 9 years ago with very little experience and in that time I have gained so much from a supportive, professional team of healthcare professionals, who are as keen to teach as I am to learn. Patient needs are at the heart of everything they do and it shows.

    Cons

    There is a small core of contracted staff who work long hours and as a result accrue many hours as time off in lieu. This is almost impossible to take back and then becomes worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Paying overtime would be a much fairer incentive.
