    @Magic Swirling Ship, don't do what I'm doing after your nightshift. Sitting in the hotel watching Quincy ME on Itv4 and posting on hibs net.

    This is what nightshift does for you people.

    Nightshift is brilliant, not for everyone though. I work with some who just can't cope.

    We (Radiology) have switched from tunics to polo shirts, they fit much better and are far more comfortable and look better than the tunics, the trousers are straight leg (or baggy if thats your preference) so a lot smarter all round, Occ therapy and Physio have went the same way, not before time imo

    Didn't mind it too much when I was single and life was work, sleep and boozer at weekends. For anybody trying to have any kind of family life nightshift is brutal.

    Depends how many nights you have to do and how long a shift is. Wait until you're doing school runs, football training, after school clubs, swimming lessons, etc, etc.

    It looks like my work is going to start us on the continental 12-hour shift pattern. Iím currently on call every 3rd week so that weeks knackered anyway and the money being talked about is excellent so Iím pretty keen to get started. Iím maybe being naive but I have never had any trouble sleeping, could sleep for Scotland in fact. The operators are already on the same shift pattern and they seem to deal with it fine.

    I was constant night shift for a while in a previous job and hated it, I finished at 7 and was usually in bed for 8 and awake at about 1, tried staying awake longer but couldn't manage, plus with my Mrs working during the day and then not seeing my wee boy I decided enough was enough, took a pay cut and went Monday to Friday 9-5 back with the nhs, was the best thing I ever done and in hindsight should never have taken the job to start with, now see the family more and actually get to do stuff with them

    With the NHS there are many jobs that suit the individual, particularly clinics which run 9-5 Monday to Friday. There are though many jobs within the service that suck the life out of you, I do 0830 till 1630 Monday to Friday, 0900 till 1700, 0900 till 1930, night shifts then every 10 weeks I work 12 days straight without a day off, its the service though and I just have to get used to it, the hospital never shuts 🥺

    Work three shift, night 22-06, back shift 14-22, morning 06-14, apparently this is completely wrong way to go.Also type one diabetic. Plays havoc with blood sugar especially mornings. We go on a course about healthy lifestyle when working shifts. Most has been covered, but one of the things they say, that I've not seen, is try to not eat during night shift but if you must take something very light.

    When I first worked for the NHS I worked a shift pattern and it wasn't so bad as the night shifts were every 4 or 5 weeks, going onto constant nights when I left killed me, suit some people but not me, mon-fri was the best thing that ever happened to me work wise!

    At least nurses get to put their feet up on the Nightshift and read a book etc. Quite relaxing.

    Aye of course they do, the patients just do their own toileting, bed changing and medication, actually a waste of time and money having Nurses on night shift.
