Healthcare Assistants (HCAs)

In addition to nurses and PCPs we have HCAs working at NEMS during the OOH period. Our HCA role is interesting and varied. In addition to routine clinical measurements like blood pressure, pulse and temperature, training will be given in recording ECGs, peak flow, testing urine and taking blood. Full training can be given. Like all NEMS roles, it is essential to have good computer skills and full training in the use of our systems is provided. The HCA's main role is to prepare each patient to be seen by the nurse or doctor. Although some of our current HCAs have completed an NVQ level training programme this is not always necessary to be employed at NEMS. There are also opportunities to develop multi-skilled roles, for example, combining HCA duties with driving duties.
