Telephone Triage

(Qualified Nurse, Paramedic or Physician Associate-2 years post registration)

If you are committed to providing holistic patient centred care then Shropdoc is offering an exciting opportunity for you to join our clinical team.

We provide patients with a high quality, caring and responsive service every day of the year. As testament to our staff and service provision we have recently been awarded an outstanding rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and have been identified as a leading provider of patient care in the country.

Shropdoc have provided out of hours services to over 600,000 patients in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Powys for 20 years and this continues to be a major focus of our work. In more recent times we have expanded to support the local health economy by providing our valued Care Coordination Centre (CCC), GP Practice Triage and Oncology Helpline services.

We are looking to expand our team of Urgent Care Practitioners (UCP Level one) to provide clinical triage in both our in and out of hours work streams. The working pattern is blended to provide cover in both traditional working hours but will include some evenings and weekends.

We offer a training programme that develops you clinically, and expands your critical thinking, to ensure patients have a smooth journey and receive the right care and the right time. Continuous Professional Development is important to us and we offer regular learning and development sessions for all of our clinical team.

This post has two key roles – clinical assessment of patients over the telephone (or via other technology such as Skype) and working with other health professionals (e.g. GPs) to access the most appropriate care for patients.   

You will have a broad understanding and experience of managing patients in a primary care or community setting and as part of a larger team, possessing excellent communication, IT and interpersonal skills.

There will be opportunities for you to develop into other roles in the organisation and a video example of how some of our UCPs work day to day can be viewed here.
