Penrose Health
Deptford, London
£35 - 40,000 / year

Our Patients Need You!

At Penrose Health, our mission is to provide the best healthcare to our patients. We're a friendly team looking for like-minded people who can help us fulfill this mission and make a real difference to our patients' lives!

The job

The role of a Penrose Health Paramedic is to work with our team to deliver the best healthcare service to our patients.

More specifically, our Paramedics are primarily responsible for second-line triage, support and diagnosis of patients with same-day queries. You will also be involved in other aspects of patient care including home visits, vaccinations and more.

With the support of the other Paramedics across the group and the experienced clinical team on site, you will be able to share information, learn and grow in your confidence and ability.


Location: Kingfisher Medical Centre, London SE8 5DA
Hours: Ideally full time (weekdays)
Salary: £35 - 40,000 FT depending on experience.
Benefits: Private medical insurance, sick pay, opportunity for funded professional development, paid professional indemnity, cycle scheme, regular activities and resilience support

About you

The right candidate will demonstrate strong interpersonal and communication skills for dealing with our diverse patient population and be able to work well in a close-knit team of both clinicians and non-clinicians. Strong clinical knowledge and good organisational and analytical skills are important to ensure successful outcomes.

If coming from outside primary care, there is likely to be a steep (but rewarding!) learning curve, so we are looking for a candidate who is prepared for this and is keen to get stuck in.

Minimum requirements: Registered Paramedic with valid HCPC registration. Previous experience working in General Practice preferred but not required.

About us

We’re a small group of close-knit surgeries in South East London on a mission to deliver the best healthcare to our patients. We use a multidisciplinary approach – bringing together GPs, Nurses, HCAs, Pharmacists, Paramedics, Mental Health Nurses and our non-clinical team to deliver an efficient and effective service with best in class outcomes for patients.

With high levels of patient satisfaction (> 4* on Google at all our sites) and low waiting times, we’ve been able to grow to over 50,000 patients and we continue to grow at a rapid pace.

We serve our patients across 7 CQC ‘Good’ rated sites in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham, with each site having its own dedicated multidisciplinary team. You’ll join one of these site-based teams but you’ll be part of the larger Penrose Health family as well!

As part of Team Penrose, you will be covered by our Vitality Private Health Insurance, you’ll have the choice of a NOW or NHS pension and you’ll benefit from a comprehensive sick pay scheme after your first year with us. We also pay your professional indemnity and you’ll have the opportunity for funded professional development in the future.

On top of the employment benefits, we love to have a bit of fun. Last year we saw a month dedicated to appreciating our team members, offered art on line classes, enjoyed ice cream from a visiting ice cream van, enjoyed surprise gifts, thank you self-care bags, fresh fruit deliveries, hosted a group-wide bake-off and Halloween fun! This year we’ll be running a year-long Penrose Cup tournament with challenges, surprises and prizes! These are just some (but not all) of the things we do to make this a great place to work!

Underneath all of this, you will also find a core strength and camaraderie that exists in each of our surgery teams and across the group – we really are a family.

All our team are enthusiastic, friendly and we want to make a real difference to our patients – come and be a part of the team!
