Are you a registered nurse or paramedic with at least 2 years' experience in an Acute or Primary/Community Care setting and ideally NHS Pathways trained? If you are a Nurse or Paramedic who is committed to Putting the Patient first, and are looking for a role with less physical demands and a better work/life balance alongside delivering high quality healthcare advice, you may want to explore this fantastic opportunity to join a not-for profit urgent care service.

It's an exciting time to be joining the team as they open a new office in Plymouth!

The Role

You'll be supporting the Health Advisors in a Contact Centre where calls are directed to you for patients requiring clinical advice. You will be confident in utilising your clinical expertise alongside our NHS Pathways software to support our patients ensuring that they receive the most suitable treatment tailored to their individual needs. You will be comfortable discussing treatment ranging from self-care advice to referring patients to other services such as OOH appointments or to other members of our multidisciplinary team. The service whilst considered non-urgent, does receive calls of an emotional, distressing or life-threatening nature and there will be times when 999 services may need to be dispatched.

Being a Clinical Advisor is a demanding yet highly rewarding career where you will be able to consistently make a difference to patients every day. There is fantastic support for career progression and personal development as an integral member of the team.

What do you receive in return?

  • Hourly rate of between £15.09 to £27.06 per hour (excluding bank holiday enhancements)
  • Full Clinical Pathways training (if required)
  • 22 days annual leave plus bank holidays
  • Clear career progression opportunities
  • Access to the company's EAP which includes counselling support and free financial advice
  • Work only 2 weekends out of 4 on a rolling 4 week rota
  • Variety of rota patterns available from 20-40 hours per week (please state preferred hours on your application)
