Healthcare Assistant

A Healthcare Assistant will generally work in either residential/nursing home or hospital settings, usually under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. Helping with the crucial day-to-day care of patients, a Healthcare Assistant provides an indispensable role in the workplace.

The nature of the role can differ depending on the healthcare setting. Typical duties include:

  • Toileting
  • Washing and dressing
  • Bed Making
  • Serving and assistance with meals (Feeding etc.)
  • Moving and handling assistance
  • General assistance with comfort
  • Monitoring of condition (Weight, temperatures, pulse etc.)

As we know, when a new recruit is taken on board, after training, vetting and further administrative duties, the time period between hiring and commencing work can be long and frustrating. We promise to make the transition as smooth as possible for both you and our worker, allowing you to have a fully staffed rota at your disposal without those lengthy waiting times.

To ensure our hard-working staff can commence work immediately, take a look below at a few compulsory extras our Healthcare Assistants will arrive at your home with:

  • Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check – We will save you both the time and cost of completing the Enhanced DBS Check necessary to allow the professional to work in a role that has contact with vulnerable children or adults. This way we minimise any possible chance of delays and allow our staff to begin work immediately.
  • Completion of comprehensive training course – In order to ensure that all staff we supply meet both the relevant Walton Out Care Healthcare code and your own company policies, we ensure every member of staff completes our mandatory, comprehensive training course. For a detailed breakdown of this training scheme, please visit the Training section of the website. Through this practice we save you the time-consuming and potentially costly in-house training for each member of staff you hire, therefore allowing our staff to commence work immediately.
  • Public Liability Insurance – Prior to commencing work in a healthcare capacity, it is compulsory for all staff to be covered by their own or if employed directly, the home’s insurance policy. All our professionals come with valid insurance policies, covering them from the first day of work, saving you unnecessary insurance hassle.
  • Uniform – All our professionals arrive fully prepared, ready to work in their own personal work uniform. However, you may have your own company uniform which our staff will be happy to wear. Either way you'll have both situations covered.

Your working environment will often be hot, busy and noisy. You may find this work unsuitable if you suffer from certain skin conditions.

You will usually be provided with a uniform.

  • Level 1 Certificate in General Cookery
  • Level 1 Diploma in Preparing for a Career in the Hospitality Industry.
