About the Job

Do you have the passion to make a difference to patients who have an urgent care need and are unable to attend their GP? Are you looking to add extra skills to your portfolio? If so, look no further, as we could have the job for you!

We have a permanent opportunity for an evening/overnight ANP within our North East Essex OOH service, covering Tendring and Colchester. Although we are ideally looking for an ANP to work on a salaried basis, we can also consider applicants who are able to work overnights on a self-employed or bank basis. We also have permanent opportunities available on weekend days, should this be of interest instead.

The North East Essex OOH service provides advice, information and treatment for NHS patients who become unwell during the out-of-hours period when their own GP surgery is closed.

The OOH’s operates out of two existing primary care centres in Essex, however we are specifically looking for ANPs who are able to work in the locations below;

• North Colchester Healthcare Centre, Colchester
• Clacton & District Hospital, Clacton

The skill mix within these services is ANP’s, UCP’s and GP’s, incorporating urgent care, telephone triage, face to face appointments and home visits.

As part of this job, you'll see, treat and discharge patients of all ages that present minor illnesses or minor injuries, either over the phone or face-to-face in the base or when you're doing a home visit.
