What doctors at this hospital are saying

What do you value most about your hospital?

“I love that it is a family and everyone is a familiar face.”

“The staff culture within ED where I work. Nepean gets a bad rap, but it is a workplace full of caring clinicians and I personally have never experienced bullying or discrimination, even on my other rotations prior to being a registrar.”

“The JMO well-being unit always responds to my queues and concerns and have been supportive thus far.”

If you could change three things at your hospital what would they be?

“The conduct of the DPETs and how they interact with for junior medical staff. DPETs should be there to support us, not make us feel inconsequential or that our concerns are not valid.”

“Extra staff to relieve Interns and Residents as rostered after hours shifts unmanageable and doctors are burning out and quitting.”
