One Health Lewisham (OHL) GP federation is recruiting to the role of Advanced Paramedic Practitioner as part of a brand new general practice home visiting service in Lewisham.

The Lewisham Home Visiting Service is an OHL developed service which will support local GP Practices by conducting rapid home visits by clinicians to housebound patients in order to deliver care in the community and help them to manage their demand.

The demand for primary care services in London is increasing and new and innovative ways are having to be found in order to meet the varied needs of patients.
