The minus side? Well currently there's pretty much no career progression for people who want to retain a clinical role unless they're a doctor or clinical psycholgist. And sometimes I feel that there's someone faceless at the top of the organisation who takes my goodwill a little too much for granted. I do way more unpaid overtime to compensate for staff shortages than I'd like and this has increased year on year to a point where I'm mightily pissed off. I don't think Dave has taken this into account when he's decided to keep our pay rises during the last few years and for the foreseeable to a random figure of 1%. During some weeks, when my freebies are taken into account, my pay drops way below that of a newly qualified nurse.
Anyway.....there was a bunch of those standard demographic questions at the end of the survey. Yes I am white British, female - tick, tick. I pause at the one about my sexuality. Should I make up something weird and wonderful out of devilment? No, behave! As far as I know, I'm boring old heterosexual. However, the religion one stumped me. There was a whole list of the usual faiths. There was also a box for those with no religion. Did that apply to me even though I speak to God and the angels pretty much on a daily basis? I don't think so. I pick and choose where I take my wisdom from. I selected the 'other' category but it didn't seem the right descriptor. I wonder if lots of people had the same dilemma.
