The new NHS Reservist programme in North Central London is open for those interested in working in health and care. We are looking for people who wish to work flexible hours, are passionate about patient care and working with diverse teams and can help the NHS during peak times and emergencies.
Roles available will differ and depend on the help needed by your local NHS Trust but below are a list of tasks you may be asked to undertake:
- General administration duties which may include: assisting the ward clerk, photocopying, answering phones, data entry, ordering PPE, patient transport booking
- Patient care duties which may include: Supporting vaccine services, ward helper, admin support to wards, basic patient feeding and hydration, patient family liaison, patient discharge support.
Anyone who has experience of working in a care environment is encouraged to register or if you have no experience but wish to gain basic caring skills, training will be offered to support you.
We are looking for non-registered Reservists to join our paid NHS Reserve team to complement the existing NHS Workforce.
Each NHS Reservist will be given induction training and have access to further training throughout the programme.
We ask for a commitment of 150 hrs minimum per year.
Local hospitals and NHS services can call on the ‘NHS reservist community’ depending on their staffing requirements and pressures in their area, creating a bank of extra resource for when it is needed.
Anyone interested should email uclh.
