This job is now closed

Job summary

We are offering an exciting opportunity for Paramedics working at an Advanced Level to work within our Primary Care Networks in conjunction with our flagship EPiC 24 Urgent Care Service to offer an Acute Home Visiting Service for GP Practices across Salford.

As a clinician you will sit alongside and be supported by a holistic team of GP's, Advanced Practitioners, Physicians Associates and Nursing Staff both in Practice and the Urgent Care Team

This role falls under the A.R.R.S (Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme)

This role is currently being developed. Some networks have already trialled this role where the request for a home visit was triaged by the GP and then home visits, apart from those which were complex or end of life care, were undertaken by the paramedic. Some of the outputs were that more patients were managed at home and there was earlier intervention by the multidisciplinary team.
