South West England

£40 - £71 per hour


Minor Illness and Minor Injury

Primary Care

Eves & Weekends

12/10/2021 - 09/11/2021


Merco would like to hear from Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs), Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs), and ECP Prescribers who are passionate and committed to delivering high quality health care in a GP Out of Hours setting. 

If you hold a non-medical prescriber qualification and would like to join our locums working across Out of Hours (OOH) services across Cheltenham, then please apply today for great rates of pay and many other benefits - including a personalised service and excellent reward schemes.

You must be willing to work evenings and weekends, and will be responsible for assessing, diagnosing and treating patients with minor illness (either face-to-face or on a telephone basis).

As an independent prescriber, you will be responsible for safely prescribing medication to complement treatment plans for a range of medical conditions. You will usually be based at one of several urgent care bases, however there are likely to be times where you may be required to undertake home visits in the community. This role is particularly suited to an autonomous clinician with a proven track record of delivering high quality care within the Primary Care arena with experience in dealing with a wide range of minor ailments.

This is an excellent opportunity to make a difference to patients that develop an urgent care need or deteriorate during the OOH period and are therefore unable to access their own GP Surgery. You will receive a full induction and be supported by a Clinical Lead.

Minimum Requirements:

• Registered Nurse with valid PIN

• Minor Illness level 6 or 7 

• Over a year of experience carrying out consultations in a Primary Care setting

• Ability to see all ages (confident with under 2’s) Merco has 18 years of experience providing locum work in Primary Care settings.

Providers and Healthcare Trusts recognise Merco as an industry leading, multi-framework award agency… with an excellent reputation of providing highly skilled and qualified clinicians. If this is you, and you would like to hear more about joining the Merco team - please apply and we will get in touch straight away.
