What doctors at this hospital are saying

What do you value most about your hospital?

“Good camaraderie amongst all the doctors and a very supportive environment which is especially helpful for the junior doctors to thrive.”

“That I feel heard and valued. My life commitments are seen as just as important at work.”

“Very friendly between inpatient teams. Overall good team work. Not as busy as lots of other hospitals.”

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

“We have no common room, and I have no secure place (such as a locker) to store my belongings. There is nowhere to sleep and nowhere to prepare food. It is extremely difficult to park — I often circle the car park for 15 minutes, and cars parked outside of bays are ticketed. There is inadequate write up space for doctors, and many broken computers and phones.”

“1. Needs more staff 2. Needs better administration staff 3. Needs better addressing of fatigue/burn out.”

“Support for taking time off for medical / health appointments. Protected teaching time. Protected lunch time.”
