Mainly based in a community setting but with some home visiting required, the ability to work unaccompanied with initiative is essential. This is a customer facing role and experience in dealing with people and familiarity of a healthcare environment is an advantage.  Full training will be given.  Full PPE is supplied as the safety of staff and clients is of paramount importance.
