Healthcare Assistant (HCA)

We are looking for enthusiastic, caring and compassionate Healthcare Assistants (HCAs) to join our friendly and well established nursing team.

The successful candidate(s) will enjoy working with the public, and whilst experience in a healthcare setting would be an advantage, this is not essential as full training will be given.

Working under the supervision of our Nurse Manager and in line with national guidance and practice protocols, you will assist our clinical team in the provision of patient care.

Once fully trained, duties will include taking blood samples, performing ECGs, blood pressure monitoring, weight management, administration of injections, lifestyle advice and much more.

West Somerset Healthcare provides family GP services from our surgeries in Williton and Watchet, and supports a culture of learning and development for our team.

We are recruiting for 30 hours per week over five days and will consider applications for the full hours as well as part-time applications for 15 hours per week.

You will be joining a team of seven part-time practice nurses and two HCAs.  Our clinical team also includes two Nurse Practitioners supporting our seven GP partners.

We offer a competitive salary dependent upon experience, generous annual leave entitlement and our staff are eligible for the NHS pension scheme.

Interested candidates are welcome to visit the practice.  To arrange a visit or for further information, please contact Wendy O'Rourke, Assistant Practice Manager, on 01984 632701 or email

Closing Date: Friday 20 August 2021
