Healthcare Assistants

The Healthcare Assistant supports the practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as  blood pressure measurement, wound checks, suture removal and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.

I am City & Guilds NVQ qualified in Health and Social Care, level 3 and work closely under the supervision of the GPs and nurse team.

Outside of work I enjoy travelling, theatre, music and socialising with my family and many friends.
