For Pathology Qld Toowoomba only
I started out really enjoying my work, feeling I was a small but important part of the team that contributes to the health needs of patients.
It's very busy on the wards, especially in the mornings. Doctors are very demanding, wanting pathology results ASAP and multiple urgent collects done at once.
We were always short staffed, management response was palmed off with "head office won't budget for more staff".
The current supervisor has been with Path QLD over 20 yrs, she is set in her ways uninterested in change, unsupportive to staff concerns, uncaring toward staff personal needs, and has created a toxic, negative working environment. The whole department wrote and signed a group letter to HR regarding her behaviour. Head office replied with a warning to staff to cease our bullying behaviour or we would face discipline reaction. 8 long term staff have resigned in as many months since.
Qld Health offers good pay rates and salary sacrificing benefits.
Excellent opportunity to develop your phlebotomy skills.
