Our urgent care practitioners (UCPs) split their time between the Clinical Hub, providing care and support over the telephone, and out in an urgent care vehicle responding to patients.
Their role is to triage and assess patients who have dialled 999 but do not require an emergency ambulance and can probably avoid a trip to A&E. UCPs will apply their professional and clinical decision making skills to treat patients or refer them on to the most appropriate pathway of care, which could be self-care or a community/primary care service.
In the Clinical Hub, UCPs also offer support to other NWAS colleagues and volunteers such as community first responders, who may need advice when they are on scene.
You will need to be highly motivated with the ability to work well under pressure and deal with stressful and highly-emotive situations, whilst providing optimum quality of care and outcome for patients.
We’re looking for individuals that can demonstrate clinical decision making skills and a commitment to providing the very best care for our patients.
In return this role will enhance your clinical leadership skills and support continued professional development within our clinical leadership framework.
