About The Role

Are you an experienced healthcare assistant looking for a new environment?

If so, this may be the role for you!

We are looking for a Healthcare Assistant to join us on a fixed term contract, in our practice based in the vibrant Brighton area.

About The Role

Working under the supervision of the clinical team, you would assist the practice and service clinical team in the provision and delivery of prescribed programmes of patient care.

You would be conducting new patient health checks and ECGs on a regular basis. As well as this, there would be administering of various injections – including the flu jabs and B12 boosters – and wound dressing. These duties would also include the management of stock, laboratory samples and vaccines.

A key part of the role is your relationship with patients, and as such you would be able to discuss health problems with them, offering advice for dietary needs, smoking and alcohol. Using this information, you would be able to assist in assessment of their wellbeing and promoting health awareness. You would also be available as a chaperone, should a patient request it. 

All of the above would also involve accurate data input, maintaining medical records and undertaking administration. There will be an expectation due to the nature of general practice that a degree of flexibility will be required & that other tasks or roles may be delegated to you, in line with their abilities & knowledge as dictated by the needs of the service.

Training would be provided in various areas to expand your responsibilities, making this role a great development opportunity.

About You

You will be an experienced Healthcare Assistant with either a Level 2 Health & Social Care NQV11 or equivalent. 

You will be confident in working with the public, providing necessary advice and chaperoning duties as required. You will also be at ease with conducting ECGs and blood pressure monitoring. You will also be comfortable with New Patient Checks and NHS health checks as required. Experience in minor surgery procedures and diabetes/glucose testing would be beneficial but not essential, as training can be provided.
