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.


You will work within a team to ensure effective communication with Nursing, Medical, Health Records and Medical Secretarial staff so the clinics are conducted effectively and efficiently.

You will endeavour to maintain effective communication with patients and their carers. This entails ensuring that patients have understood their consultation and any instructions regarding further investigations have been explained thoroughly.

You are expected to be flexible in the way they work and to undertake any task or activity assigned to them – HCA’s will only be required to undertake activities for which training has been provided and for which they have been assessed as competent.

The Outpatient Care Assistant is responsible for a range of support services to the Outpatients Department encompassing clerical, clinical and ancillary duties as allocated by the Regisitered Nurse.

You will be expected to cover clinics over at Aldershot Centre for Health as and when required.

The Outpatients nursing team is a friendly, cohesive team who work towards supporting their colleagues and patients.
