Overview

The Primary Care Visiting Service (PCVS) has been running in the City of Oxford since April 2018. It provides same day clinical assessment to acutely unwell patients that are unable to travel to their surgery. Using the same clinical software, patients are referred directly into appointment slots by a GP from one of the 20 member practices. Patients are then seen by an experienced Clinician equipped with OxFed laptops, which allow direct access to the patient’s full electronic notes and real time notes recording.

We are now looking to recruit additional members to the PCVS clinical team as experienced Advanced   Nurses   and/or   Paramedic   Practitioners.   This   will   bring   added   resilience   to    the service, additional skill sets and assist the continuing delivery and design of the service.

The  post  holder(s)  will  be  expected  to  visit  up  to  6  patients  per  day  in  their  own  homes   and autonomously undertake, clinical assessments of acutely unwell patients on behalf of the referring GP.  Once  the  patient  has  been  seen,  clinical  diagnosis  and   a  management  plan   can  then  either  be  formulated  by   the   visiting   clinician   (depending   on   their   clinical expertise) or after collaboration and discussion with the patient’s own GP.  Prescribing is not required as this will be actioned by the patient’s own GP.

 

In addition, the post holder will be given the opportunity to attend and participate in practice based clinics. By gaining one to  one  mentorship  and  teaching  from  an  experienced  GP,  the  post holder will be able to substantially increase their understanding of minor illness, whilst maintaining their ongoing and continuing professional development.

We reserve the right to close the position once suitable applications have been received.

No agencies please.
