Frimley Health is a Trust where great care and great careers go hand in hand. We’re three hospitals working closely with each other and with the communities we serve in Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire and Buckinghamshire  - our organisation has brought Heatherwood and Wexham hospitals into the fold of Frimley Park Hospital and its wider community services.

You’ll find the highest standards of clinical excellence across our locations and a friendly, supportive, open culture that brings everyone together. For our team it means a great day-to-day working experience – in a Trust with strong leadership, a clear sense of direction and an exciting vision for the future. The investment and changes ahead make this an exciting place to be. You can play your part in delivering exceptional patient care, while continuing to grow, develop and progress through first class learning and training.

We currently have TWO vacancies for experienced and enthusiastic Band 3 Health Care Assistants (HCA) to work within the Community Care Team. This post is based at Aldershot Centre for Health. Both posts are full time (37.5hrs) and will be worked over a seven day period. Shift patterns include: Earley's (8-4), Day's (9-5), Late's (11-7pm) or Twilights (3-11pm). Those looking for part time/flexible hours are encouraged to apply/ring to discuss.   

As a Health Care Assistant you will need to be flexible and hardworking as you will be expected to see patients in their own home environment, under minimal supervision, working within your competencies and adhering to the Trust's Lone Working Policy. We pride ourselves on delivering high standards of care and you will need to demonstrate how you will ensure this through your application/interview.

You will be working on a one-to-one basis with adult patients in their own homes and in local neighbourhoods – where people prefer to be treated for many conditions and diseases.

Please ensure you read the Job Description and Person Specification carefully to ensure you meet all necessary requirements before applying.
