What our members say

Toyah Murray

Toyah Murray

Administrator, Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

"I really enjoy the NHSP roles I do, from ward clerking to assistant work, I love it all the same. I like the interaction with people I get when ward clerking - as in my full time employed post, I sit alone in an office so it’s nice to 'mingle' as they say! In my current NHSP role, I am really enjoying how much I am learning week by week! It's nice to see the Trust in different areas and be able to complete different tasks that I don't usually get to do.

I also love that all the extra work I am committing to via NHSP is work that is helping me train for my future career goals and enabling me to gain knowledge on different services, teams, interactive work etc. I enjoy the flexibility and being free to choose when I can and want to work extra. I also enjoy being able to branch out and meet new people and discover new ways to work".

Solomon Adade

Therapy Assistant, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust

"I love the fact that I can put a smile on my patients faces. By being able to see them transfer into a chair or take their first steps post-surgery is a very rewarding process in which I am grateful for. I am able to make a tangible difference in a patient’s recovery consistently.

Working through NHS Professionals provides me with the opportunity to work in a variety of settings/wards within a hospital. This is important in allowing me to develop my clinical reasoning and experience on wards that I may not always be on during the week. As part of my continuing professional development, I believe this is something which would also challenge me when I am in unfamiliar environments to take a clinically reasoned problem-solving approach to each patient".

"I love my role because I get to work with patients face-to-face on both the wards and in the community. Working with stroke survivors is a privilege.
