About the role

You will be a valued member of our Outpatient team supported by our experienced Manager, Ewa.

This will include vital signs recording, venepuncture, ECG recordings, urinalysis and peak flow recordings.

You will have completed your NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care or be willing to work towards it and hold your BLS certificate. With recent experience working as a Health Care Assistant in an acute setting it would be advantageous if you have performed basic investigations but it is not essential.
