I am finally starting my job as a clinical support worker tomorrow. I’m really nervous, having not worked in a hospital environment before, and I have no idea what to expect!
I’m working from 7am to 7.30pm, which I’m happy to be doing as I think I’ll be able to learn quicker on longer shifts.
I don’t have my uniform yet so will be collecting that in the morning as soon as the sewing room opens. I’ll also need to get my ID card from HR. I will try and apply for flexible working when I’m there, so that I can continue to work in neuropsychology every Friday.
I’m enjoying the volunteer AP role, I’ve been given a few tasks to do every week, including an audit, and in the coming weeks one of the full time APs is leaving, so I’ll be able to take on some extra responsibilities whilst they only have 2 APs. I’ve observed one patient’s first appointment too, which was a great experience and I felt like I learnt a lot.
