Primary Care Paramedic - Home Visit RRV - Surrey
We provide Urgent & Emergency Home Visits Services for 14 NHS Primary Care Networks in North Surrey & West London. This role is primarily based in North West Surrey, starting at our base in Shepperton near Heathrow. You have the opportunity to address your work-life balance working mainly M-F, finishing between 1800-1900 the vast majority of days, whist delivering high quality care in fully equipped RRVs. Support towards MSc (Urgent Care) as well as excellent ongoing CPD.
Location Medical Services are looking for experienced paramedics with excellent clinical skills and “real world” experience (2 years post-NQP - or with previous EMT level experience) to be part of an expanding team delivering an innovative and exciting community response home visiting paramedic services on behalf of GP networks in the North West Surrey / West London area. Candidates should have extensive operational experience as a paramedic, full HCPC registration and driving licence, and be strongly motivated towards refocusing, enhancing skills and experience in a primary care setting. We can offer training and mentorship and will support further education towards the required Level 7 modules in advanced practice.
The role involves working closely with GP practices, prioritising and responding to visit requests. Visits are primarily in patients’ homes, with treatment plans, referrals or admissions as agreed with the duty GPs as appropriate. Most work is same day - and urgent or emergency patients are prioritised and responded to appropriately, with ALS equipment and skills utilised as required. This role is to join a team of 12 clinicians operating daily providing a responsive primary care home visiting service on behalf of GP networks across North West Surrey. Shifts are normally 9.5 hours base to base, between 08:30-18:00 or 09:30-19:00 Monday to Friday with one day of rest during the week, in addition to weekends off. In rare cases the last visit may overrun, however from experience this in once or twice per month and typically no later than 1900. The is an autonomous role and relies on traditional paramedic specialties of "thinking on your feet" and dealing with sick patients in their homes, taking thorough histories, observations and discussing these with GPs for prescription, referral, or treatment decisions to be made. Fully equipped marked cars are provided.
Location Medical Services have been operating for 25 years with the same management team. We have an excellent reputation in the industry as fair employers who pay promptly, without fail, and recognise and reward talent and commitment within a growing company. Equipment is modern and well maintained and all staff are supported by an excellent clinical leadership. You will be part of the larger LMS "family" of likeminded clinicians dedicated to providing industry leading healthcare to Film, TV and large event events - you will, of course, have the chance to opt into a huge variety of shifts in these areas; they can be useful for making up hours, for variety and to see events, concerts, or football matches that you might otherwise pay for!
Please apply with a CV and covering letter explaining why you would be an excellent choice for this role, what you are currently doing and when you could start. Please note we are currently only interested in applicants who can commit to 4 x 9.5 -hour shifts per week (aka full time), we don't have capacity for part time work in this role (please contact us directly for working on Events / Film & TV via www.locationmedical.com/contact).
DBS, qualifications and references will be checked in all cases.
