The Canford Heath Group Practice

Up to 16 hours a week

The Canford Heath Group Practice, a friendly and innovative GP practice close to Poole is looking for a Healthcare Assistant (HCA) to join its current team of nurses, HCAs, Phlebotomists and allied health professionals for up to 16 hours a week.

The ideal candidate will have an interest in training to become an HCA or have experience having been an HCA in the past. Full training will be given.

The practice is supportive and proactive in terms of training and education and our friendly team, overseen by our Advanced Nurse Practitioner, are welcoming and helpful to both patients and colleagues.

You will either be a current GP Practice or Hospital based HCA with all the necessary skills, or, as we have a proven track record of "growing our own" colleagues you will be looking to become an HCA and will be willing to undergo the mandatory Care Certificate.

The ideal candidate will be able to; 

  • Take blood
  • Dress wounds 
  • Perform ECGs
  • Support with Minor Operations 
  • Undertake the NHS Health Check
  • Take blood pressure readings 
  • Support the Practice Nurses in their continued work with patients who have Long Term Conditions

We intend to re-join the Network Leg Club when Covid-19 safety measures are in place but we currently treat and support patients with leg ulcers in practice and have a high healing rate.

However as discussed full training will be given for the right candidate.

The practice, located in a suburb of Poole has 12,300 patients on its list and is located in one practice site with four GP Partners, four salaried GPs, one retainer, a Paramedic Practitioner, Advanced Nurse Practitioner and a range of allied health professionals such as First Contact Practitioners, Network Pharmacists, Physios, Podiatrists and links with Poole Hospital and Dorset Healthcare.

We are a welcoming and friendly practice and we encourage an informal visit to us to see for yourself our ethos and discuss the job role.
