Meridian Business Support are delighted to be working with one of the UK's leading providers of behavioural care and specialist support services to recruit for a Health Care Assistant.

From education to hospitals, care homes and secure facilities, our client offers individually tailored, multidisciplinary treatment programmes for those with complex educational needs or requiring acute, long-term and respite mental healthcare.

The integrated strength of each service provides a seamless transition for the individual as they progress between higher and lower dependency care and across services. This unique approach ensures that every individual has the opportunity to achieve the best possible outcomes and quality of life.

As 85% of our clients services are publicly funded and delivered in partnership with commissioners, our teams work with commissioning bodies across the country to provide transparent pricing models and evidence-based care programmes.

  • Assisting patients with personal care tasks such as bathing, dressing, and grooming.
  • Monitoring and recording vital signs, including blood pressure, pulse, and temperature.
  • Helping with mobility and positioning of patients.
  • Assisting with feeding and hydration needs.
  • Providing emotional support and companionship to patients.
  • Maintaining a clean and safe environment for patients.
  • Collaborating with other healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality care.
  • Adhering to all healthcare protocols, procedures, and regulations.
Requirements:
  • Proven experience as a Healthcare Assistant or similar role preferred but not required.
  • Compassionate and empathetic nature.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to work effectively in a team environment.
  • Strong attention to detail and observation skills.
  • Willingness to learn and adapt to new challenges.
All roles will be subject to a successful disclosure at an appropriate level from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), Access NI or Disclosure Scotland. Cost of a DBS check will be covered by the employer.
