Calling All ANPs!
Practice Plus Group, along with other independent providers of healthcare services are working with the NHS in a collective effort to combat the crisis posed by COVID-19.
In our collective response to COVID-19 Practice Plus Group, we are seeking applications from ANPs to respond to increased demand in calls to our Out-of-Hours services.
In particular, we are recruiting for face-to-face clinicians who can work in our primary care bases as well as conducting home visits to patients.
Practice Plus Group is the largest provider of unscheduled care services in the UK and we proudly continue to lead the way with innovation in line with the vision of the NHS. This means we have a constant need to add to our bright and dynamic medical team to ensure we continue to fulfil the lives of our patients.
We have permanent or self-employed opportunities within our North East Essex Out of Hours (OOH) service, with locations in Colchester and Clacton-on-Sea (face to face), as well as Ipswich (for telephone triage).
If you are looking for flexible hours and want to help in this time of need, then we would be happy to discuss how working with us can fit around you and your other commitments.
