About the role
We are working with the current healthcare provider towards a seamless transition to Care UK in June and to ensure the continued quality of care we are looking to recruit a number of additional individuals to support this service.
The OOH service is an appointment based service that is accessed via the national NHS 111 service. Patients are assessed via the 111 team and if it’s clinically appropriate, they will get referred on to our OOH service. This will lead to either a face-to-face appointment in one of our primary care centres, or a home visit by one of our clinicians.
We have a job opening for an Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANP's) to join the OOH team on a self employed / flexible basis. As this is an OOH job, we are looking for you to be flexible for evenings and weekends.
There are five primary care centres based within the region for ease of access by patients and staff. These locations are: Cheltenham, Stroud, Cinderford, Moreton-on-Marsh and Cirencester.
This is an exciting opportunity to make a difference to patients that can’t always access their GP in time, so if you are looking to add extra skills to your current portfolio or if you are just seeking additional hours this could be the job for you!
