Are you a reliable, dependable, skilled Advanced Clinical Practitioner (ACP), who is passionate and committed to delivering high quality health care in an integrated urgent care service environment? Do you really want to make a real difference to people’s lives?
If you hold a non-medical prescriber qualification and would like to join our professional team providing outstanding patient care then we would love to hear from you. As we provide an OOH service, you must be willing to work evenings and weekends.
The IUC CAS service is a telephone based service located in our Call Centres in Ashford, Norfolk and Essex. You will be part of the multidisciplinary team which includes GPs; ACPs, UCPs and Prescribing Pharmacists. The CAS team works collaboratively with 111 service, home visiting service and Primary Care Centre services of the IUC in conjunction with other urgent and emergency care services such as the ambulance service. Patients will get referred to you via NHS 111, where you will be expected to use your clinical expertise to treat, advise or refer them on to the most appropriate service with the aim of safely completing a high proportion of your calls at the telephone assessment stage. As part of the IUC model, you will also deliver face to face consultations from a designated Primary Care Centre when required.
This role is particularly suited to an autonomous clinician with a proven track record of delivering high quality care within the Primary Care arena with experience in dealing with a wide range of minor ailments. This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference to patients that develop an urgent care need or deteriorate during the OOH period and are therefore unable to access their own GP Surgery. You will receive a full induction and be supported by a Clinical Lead.
Locations: Norfolk, Essex or Kent
Hours Available: 30+ hours with a flexible rota working 5 out of 7 days, 60% of time out of hours including evenings, overnights and weekends
