We currently have a position available for an experienced healthcare assistant to support our client who has a spinal injury.

Our client’s condition means that he has a tracheostomy and is ventilator dependent. He is nil by mouth so has all nutrition via gastrostomy and requires hoisting for all transfers.

Continuity of the care team is extremely important to this gentleman and his family, so we need healthcare assistants who can commit to regular work with this client on a long-term basis.

We are looking for healthcare assistant who can assist with clinical requirements as well as personal care, moving and handling and supporting out in the community.
