About the Role
We are looking for a Paramedic Practitioner to join our Visits Team, who work closely with GPs at all 8 practices in Gosforth and Jesmond, to provide home and care home visits to patients. The role is central to our commitment to provide equal access to people who need to be seen in person, but are unable to visit a surgery. The role also involves face-to-face consultations with patients in our same-day access clinics.
The core function of the role is to assess, diagnose and treat patients based on taking full histories, comprehensive physical and functional examination and clinical knowledge and judgement.
If you have questions about the role, you can contact Laura Oliver, Project Manager, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The successful candidate will be a registered HCPC with an interest in or experience of Primary Care, or currently in an Emergency Care Practitioner role, or working at Advanced Practitioner level. A non-medical prescribing qualification would be advantageous, although not essential.
You will be an effective communicator with a problem-solving mindset, and the ability to form effective working relationships as well as to work independently, managing a dynamic workload.
