    I am now officially an NHS lab monkey, and proud of it :love:

    Starting next month. I can't wait to get out of the office and into the lab. No more sitting infront of a PC all day with absolutely no work to do, no more skiving in e-mails and sitting on MAP, no more playing Desktop TD and Chopper Challenge, no more pool tables on break time...oh wait...

    Nah it's worth it :D

    Celebrations to last the entire weekend. (Like I need an excuse)



    Pressie on the way soon chimp :p

    V in a lab? Best try and keep her away from the iron oxide, Potassium chloride and nitrates. You never know what she may try and blow up...

    :D

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Healthcare Vic! :eek:


    Hope that you enjoy your new job there kiddo. Most of our lab "monkeys" just can't stand the administrative side of healthcare. It's all about Turn Around Time vs. accuracy. Clients want their results yesterday whether they have provided correct information or not! :woo:


    Congratulations!

    It looks like I'll be spending most of my time labeling samples and getting them ready for inspection. They didn't mention much paperwork but there's bound to be some. A computer while I'm doing admin would be nice!

    Thanks for the welcome Narc :D

    V remind me the next time you mention lab work for my own sanity please tell not to put up chemical elements of explosives... :D

    Pick up samples, write on samples, put samples down somewhere else :p

    I don't know yet, this is a different department to the original one I applied for.



    Aye Lou, watch the GRRRRRR thread, I'll be in there soon enough :D

    As for career, yep, I can move around inside the NHS now that I'm in, and either wait on their waiting list for college and university support (they even have a waiting list for that!), or do formal qualifications off my own back. It's likely to be the later as I had planned to do anyway. Once I have my degrees I can move upwards :cool: (in theory)
