    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kettering General Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly teams. Lots of chance for development. Approachable and visible management. I have worked in a lot of hospitals and this is one of the best.

    Cons

    The only cons are those that are unavoidable with the pressures the NHS currently faces. KGH still puts staff working conditions and patient safety as a priority despite these.

    Advice to Management

    Management need to carry on doing what they are doing. They do their best to support the staff on the floor despite external pressures and restrictions.

    Pros

    good to work with patients lots of staff training

    Cons

    overworked, not enough recognition for the work we do, no support from band 6s and above, band 5s to busy to help you, Instead of doing a load of course work, you should be judged on how you perform overall and your work ethics

    Advice to Management

    care more for your band 2s
