Express new ideas, take initiative and save lives. Others talk about being brave, at IC24, we’re made that way.
From providing high quality integrated urgent care for over six million people, to thinking of innovative solutions for our patients – every role at IC24 is made to be brave.
As an Urgent Care Practitioner, you’ll be expected to assess all patients and provide the right management or referral. You’ll have to be reliable and dependable, passionate and committed to delivering high quality health care in an out-of-hours (OOH) environment.
If you have extended assessment and minor illness skills and would like to join our professional team as an Urgent Care Practitioner (UCP), 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 that has undertaken core modules within the Specialist Paramedic, Nurse/Paramedic Practitioner program or an experienced Nurse/Paramedic who has additional training in assessing minor illness. This is an opportunity like no other – one that makes a difference to patients that require urgent care or deteriorate during the OOH period.
If you’re looking to add additional skills to your current portfolio or if you’re just seeking additional hours, this could be the job for you. You will receive a full induction and be supported by a Clinical Lead.
Locations Norfolk, Essex or Kent
Hours Available Flexible shifts, including evenings, overnights and weekends
