Job summary

Are you an experienced Practitioner looking to continue your career in the field of Urgent Care?

Due to the recent expansion and development of the UTC's service here in Petersfield we are looking to recruit another nurse or paramedic to join and compliment our Practitioner team.

We are a practitioner led service, supported by remote GP's, offering treatment for both minor injury and minor illness. The UTC is open 08:00 -- 20:00 hours, 365 days a year.

The successful applicants should be an experienced autonomous practitioner and must have assessment, diagnostic and management skills in minor injury and minor illness care with relevant experience in an unscheduled or primary care setting.
