Job Details

This is a very exciting time for the development of urgent care across north Wales. In the last few years the Healthboard have been working hard, developing new ways of working to ensure that patients are seen by the most appropriate clinician, in the right place at the right time.

We are now in a fantastic position and to be able to look at salaried clinical roles that encompass all or some of the services outlined below. We are also able to link this into primary care and provide a really inspiring role for portfolio clinicians. Rotations through all elements of urgent primary care under a salaried contract allowing for flexible working and a better work life balance.

Single Integrated Clinical Assessment and Triage (SICAT)

One of the services developed SICAT, is now in its third year and has supported thousands of patients. This service aims to speak directly to the patient or their representative early in their journey, assess their clinical need and direct them through the most appropriate pathway or care removing any non value added steps. This might include, for example, direct booking into other services, direct liaison with specialities in secondary care including palliative care and frailty. We would also like clinician to consider whether they can close the episode of care at their point of contact, consult and complete without the need for access to further services.
