An exciting new opportunity within General Practice
Care UK is delivering a brand new model of care for general practice called Practice Plus. Working with a leading Pharmacy Partner, the Practice Plus provides an enhanced general practice service to NHS patients through the use of technology and remote care, as well as face-to-face appointments.
We offer patients face-to-face, home-visits or telephone appointments within 48 hours of them calling, and often on the same day. The service also offers a wide range of approved NHS tests which can be done before the patients see a healthcare professional.
Patients have access to a “personal health hub” where they can organise routine appointments and order repeat prescriptions online 24 hours a day. The hub also provides an intuitive symptom checker, where wellbeing advice is given and tailored to their needs.
Practice Plus is currently operating in Brighton for the time being, but with ambitious plans to expand this is an exciting time to join the service and become part of something new, with endless possibilities for career development and progression.
