Looking for a responsible and rewarding driving job that gives a flexible choice of hours over evenings and weekends? Join the team supporting our Out Of Hours services across Gloucestershire and play your part in ensuring better healthcare for your local area.
As the largest independent provider of NHS services, Practice Plus Group is delivering a new model of Integrated Urgent Care that reduces pressures on services and staff. By bringing together NHS 111 call centres, clinical assessment and other urgent care services, we enable patients to access the right care, when they need it. It’s better for everyone.
As a Bank Driver, you’ll chauffeur GPs and nurses to and from patients’ homes – typically when they’re unable to see their usual clinician. This is not an emergency service and you will need to follow all the normal rules of the road. It will be part of your role to ensure the safety of our clinicians and medical equipment, so you may be asked to escort them to the patient’s front door. You’ll also be expected to keep vehicles appropriately maintained, and at times you’ll need to communicate with the public, as well as the team back at base.
This is a Bank role that enables you to choose to accept the shifts you want. However, most shifts will be available across evenings and weekends. Ideally you will flexible to work around Bank Holidays and can be available at short notice to cover sickness and cancellations and could cover all sites: Gloucester, Stroud, Cirencester & Cheltenham. When not driving, you would also have the opportunity to work on site in an admin capacity or on reception.
