Join Our Staff Bank - Flexible Work To Suit All

Working hours: As and when to suit you,

Salary: Variable dependent on role and practice

Kernow Health CIC hosts the Staff Bank on behalf of General Practices in Cornwall, and we are looking for people to join our flexible workforce and support practices to deliver their clinics. We are seeking staff from all disciplines - both clinical and non-clinical including nurses, healthcare support workers, phlebotomists, receptionists and admin staff to join our Staff Bank and provide short term, ad-hoc cover to Practices that need it most.

Being part of and working within our Staff Bank provides you with the flexibility to choose the days you want to work and how far you want to travel. You can work over a range of different locations across Cornwall or simply at your nearest Practices. You’re in the driving seat!

If you are already working for a Practice, this is an opportunity for you to pick up additional hours either with your PCN or another Practice delivering in your area of expertise. You can also join as a locum worker (this means being self-employed) or a casual worker (with a zero-hours contract).

As the Covid vaccination clinics move to administering boosters, there are increased opportunities for working with Practices to support this. If you have left General Practice and would like to return to support with Clinics, we can support you to re-register, or register as an emergency practitioner.

Being part of the Staff Bank, we can offer you:

  • Induction
  • Mandatory training
  • Supervision and appraisal
  • ID and uniform
  • Access to training/CPD

Who we are looking for: Caring, compassionate, and enthusiastic team members with an interest in patient care, good communication skills and a positive attitude. Further details of the requirements for the various roles can be found in the relevant job descriptions.
