The key aims of the service are to facilitate early discharge from hospital and to reduce unnecessary A&E attendance. The team also aim to reduce the demand for hospital admissions by providing the right care at the point of need. This exciting and challenging role offers the post holder the opportunity to provide high quality patient focused care in the community, providing clinical care, including telephone triage within the Unscheduled Care Team and if necessary within the Single Point of Access Team, diagnosis, treatment, referral, review or discharge as appropriate. The post holder will hold and utilise a range of advanced skills and have expert knowledge to assess patients with a range of undifferentiated and undiagnosed conditions. This service operates seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

You must also be able to demonstrate experience of working autonomously and possess excellent communication skills. You will be required to work effectively and autonomously within the team and across the multidisciplinary sector.
