Pleasant and comfortable working environment
professional nurse (Former Employee) –  Groote Schuur, Western Cape1 December 2017
Working for the WCDH was nice and enjoyable, I learned a lot working there,things that I didn't learn when I was doing my practicals as a student. It was an eye opener in many angles.
The staff and colleague are easy out going people who are willing to help and easy to interact with. The hardest part is when the patient is completely wrong but we must act like they right because we fear of being report as IL-treating the patience as professional nurses.

Pros
feels good to help the public with primary health care

pressure when under staffed

Busy work environment with multiple learning opportunities
Community Service Medical Officer (Former Employee) –  Mitchells Plain, Western Cape9 January 2017
A typical day at work is very busy with lots of patients being admitted to the Emergency Rooms.
I learnt how to think on my feet and cope with pressure situations on a daily basis and I discovered the steps to effective problem-solving when having to work as a team.
The hardest part of the job was the very long working hours and lack of recovery time when having to work on a shift basis.
The most enjoyable part of my job was the knowledge that I was helping fellow human beings.
