So, alongside my MSc I will be working as a Healthcare Assistant at a paediatric a&e! I’m very excited and I can’t wait to start, but the paperwork is taking ages.
This job is great for numerous reasons. I’ll actually really enjoy this job rather than just counting down the days before I apply for medicine. I think, though, it will be very challenging when there are big-sick kids…I’ll let you know how I deal it when there are emotionally demanding days.
When it comes to hca jobs, most involve tasks like looking after elderly toileting but with paeds a&e often the parents will be around to help out with that; similarly horrible things like pressure sores won’t be an issue because of the fast turnaround of patients.
Anyway, I’ll let you know how it goes.
