OxFed is working with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust to establish a 7-Day Primary Care Service that will bring together a range of GP, primary care and community healthcare services for the Oxford City population.
The purpose of the service is to improve access to and experience of NHS care throughout the week, while relieving pressure on local general practices. By bringing together different professionals, we can provide a wider range of expert care to patients who need it, such as physiotherapy and treatment room nursing. This will reduce the number of patients who feel the need to attend A&E and help avoid unnecessary hospital admissions.
The service is intended to support the care patients receive from their local practice. Patients with complex or long-term health problems will continue to see their own GP. We anticipate that many of the appointments will be used by patients with minor illnesses and more straightforward conditions who are unable to visit their practice in normal surgery hours and who don’t need to see their own usual doctor or nurse.
You will be working at one of the 7DAS sites which are located in various locations around the city.
The post-holder will be required to provide phlebotomy services as well as some general administrative/reception duties. This will include receiving, assisting and directing patients in accessing the appropriate service or healthcare professional in a courteous, efficient and effective way.
Duties may vary from time to time under the direction of the Operations Manager, dependant on current and changing workloads, staffing levels and other factors.
We reserve the right to close the position once suitable applications have been received.
No agencies please.
