About the Job
Care UK currently delivers an Out of Hours (OOH) Service across the North East Essex region. 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 Practitioner (ANP) to join our OOH team either on a flexi/bank basis. As this is an OOH job, we are looking for you to be flexible for evenings and weekends.
We have two main primary care centres based within the region for ease of access by patients and staff. These locations are:
•Colchester PCC, North Colchester Healthcare Centre, Colchester
•Clacton PCC, Clacton & District Hospital, Clacton-on-Sea
Both locations are easily accessible as they have on-site car parking available and Colchester PCC is within walking distance of the train station.
Within this job, you will be responsible for providing health assessments and treatment of patients on a face-to-face or telephone basis. You may also be required to conduct home visits if and when necessary.
This is an exciting 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. 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!
