Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre has been rated Outstanding by the CQC putting it at the very top of the regulator’s quality ratings and our focus is on ensuring that patients received high quality treatment quickly, in clean and comfortable surroundings

About the role

As a member of the multidisciplinary theatre and endoscopy team led by our experienced Theatre Manager, Heidi, you will provide support to ensure a high standard of patient care throughout the patient journey. This will mean observing and reporting changes in a patient’s condition, escorting patients, assisting the clinical and medical staff and participating in the day to day coordination of theatre and endoscopy activity.

With recent experience working as a Health Care Assistant in an acute setting, you will have your NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care or be willing to work towards it.
