Health Care Assistant – Bridge View Medical
Hours: Part time or full time
Salary: £9.48 to £10.50 dependent on experience
Location: Bridge View Medical, Bedminster, Bristol
Reports to: Lead Nurse
Bridge View Medical is a Primary care Network with 4 merged practices in South Bristol with c38,000 patients cared for by a team of 130 dedicated Partners and staff. We are proud recipient of Academy Teaching Practice Award.
We pride ourselves on being a learning Practice which in turn looks to teach others. Two of our sites host GP Trainees and we also deliver a very large training programme for medical students from Bristol University and Nurse students from UWE. Bridge View Medical’s teaching across year groups was recognised in the last academic year with an Academy GP Teaching Practice Award.
In recognition that excellent performance is grounded in good training we hold education afternoons every six weeks. During these afternoons we bring all staff together and provide some whole Practice updates and then deliver targeted education delivered by external speakers or our own staff sharing their clinical expertise.
Although we are a multi-site Practice we recognise that people work best in established teams. Our approach is to provide each colleague with a permanent (home) site but ask that they work at another (away) site for short periods, usually of one day, to support their colleague
