Health Care Assistants (or HCA’s as they often referred to) at Practice Plus Group come from all walks of life. Many have no, or minimal, experience, but are keen to explore a career in care, while many already have invaluable experience. What they all have in common is the right values. They’re adaptable, friendly, polite and caring. They enjoy working as a team with people from different cultures and backgrounds. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you share these values? Then we could have just the role for you. We are looking for a Health Care Assistant to join our team on a part time basis, working 22.5 hours per week.
About the role
Working as a Health Care Assistant in outpatients at our Practice Plus Group Hospital, Shepton Mallet, you’ll provide support to the nursing staff, ensuring that a safe and effective service is provided to all users across the department. This will involve liaising with the recovery, theatre, ward and radiology teams when required. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.
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.
