Stressful, non appreciative management

At first things were fine but iver time one could see that there is a Need for people with experience, knowledgeable in a specific field. Panelists should be relevant people. It is as if you are there to accompany someone they already know they want.

Good environment to work in and fun at the same time.Learning while working

Being apart of department of health was so good for me because I had the privilege to help my fellow people and most of all my community members,my aim in life is to always lend a helping hand to everyone that needs help,while working for a health department made me realize how one can change someone's life and make a difference and to be able to take care of those that can't or not able to take care of themselves anymore.I learned that being a health worker you must have a passion for what you are doing and in the end it won't just be a job that brings in money but to put the clients needs first and being a health worker is such an honor because there is someone that depends on your help and for me that makes it worth serving my people in any related health issues.I am very grateful for Department of Health that gave me the opportunity in teaching me how to be a healthcare worker and I must say in the 2 years I have learned alot and I've found my passion and that's serving my people.

At Regional level the work is more of an oversite but it is stressful with tight deadlines sometimes.

A work day ends with the planning of the next work days. There is strict rules to be timeous and deadlines that needs to be met. It is a nice place to work as induction covers all aspects of your purpose and function and the department.

Pros

5day work week. all public holidays and weekends off

Cons

tight deadlines that can not be missed

Very productive.

The team that I worked it was understood the assignment and they know what team work is about. The management was very professional and they made sure that they led us in the right direction. Overall it was a great experience.

Pros

Great management

Cons

It's a contract with no promise for a permanent position.

Productive, and conjusive workplace

Team work is key there, shortage of resources is the most part that hinders one to do work properly. The backing of other disciplinaries makes it easy to function.

Pros

Enough time for lunch

Cons

12 hours shifts

Demanding, unethical practices

The dept of health just like all other government institutes have fancy protocols in place but fail to adhere to them.A lot of new staff have qualification but have to be trained and retrained continuously it really becomes a nightmare to managers.Excessive nepotism in the interview process .CEO rely on political power rather than work capability

Pros

Nothing for free

Cons

Qualification but no experience most employees

Unprofessional and descrimination

Department of Health use community health workers but not paying them enough money. Community health workers are like toys to the department, they are not getting enough money, no benefits, we are not even allowed to have a study leave, and always renew one year contract from 2019....the department of Health is not fair for community health workers 💔💔💔😭

Pros

Free uniforms to others

Cons

Little stipend

Tough work experience but plenty of clinical experience gained

Tough work experience but plenty of clinical experience gainedOwing to many resource constraints, diagnostic workup and clinical decision-making is made extremely difficultSignificant personal sacrifice is necessitated by the long working hoursMany long lasting friendships and collegial alliances are forged

Pros

Great clinical learning experience

Long hours
