Pick a job, any job....



Apparently the NHS needs more staff. So they have created a website so schoolkids think the NHS is cool to work for - Step into the NHS.

There are lots of videos, on caring, benefits of working for the NHS, and breaking your wrist.

I decided to do the test which decides what job in the NHS would suit you from the hundreds available. My list of 5 was A+E Doctor, Paediatrician, Paediatric nurse, midwife, Biomedical scientist. So I guess after my course I might be qualified for 40% of the jobs it thinks I suit.
Butcher Boy came out as :
  • Director of finance
  • Information Analyst
  • Medical secretary
  • Chief executive
  • Accountant
The full list is:
Accident and emergency doctor · Accountant · Adult nurse ·· Anatomical pathology technologist · Audiologist Biomedical scientist
Cardiac physiologist · Chef · Chief executive · Children's nurse · Clinical audit assistant · Clinical audit facilitator · Clinical coder · Clinical psychologist · Clinical scientist · Clinical technologist · Communications/PR executive · Community pharmacist Dietitian · Director of finance · Director of operations · District nurse · Dramatherapist Electrician · Emergency care practitioner · Emergency medical dispatcher · Emergency services call handler · Estates officer Forensic psychologist Gardener · General practice doctor Housekeeper · Human resources professional
Information analyst · IT help desk advisor · IT support officer Laundry assistant Maternity support worker · Maxillofacial prosthetist · Medical laboratory assistant · Medical physicist · Medical records clerk · Medical secretary · Midwife Network manager · Non-clinical (counselling) psychologist Occupational therapist · Occupational therapy assistant · Operating department practitioner Paediatrician · Paramedic · Pathologist · Pathology links officer · Personal assistant · Phlebotomist · Physiotherapist · Play worker · Porter · Psychiatrist · Psychotherapist
Radiographer (diagnostic) · Respiratory physiologist Speech and language therapist · Sterile services technician · Surgeon · Systems analyst

I don't know how much this website costs, but ifs clear how the increased NHS funding is not resulting in improvements at hospitals and GP surgeries, when so much is topsliced for this website, MTAS and the NHS Jobs website which seems to be unable to fulfil its function, and which many Trusts do not even use. Will Alan Johnston stop the NHS Corporate Service function using all the budget increases?
