Integrated Urgent Care/Clinical Assessment Service (IUC/CAS)
Sessional GP – Clinical Advisor
NB: As a Trust we work within IR35 regulations
We are in the process of evolving and developing our service to meet the changing needs of patients in the North East. Our commitment to quality and service improvement can be seen through our recent Good Care Quality Commission report.
Over the last four years we have successfully implemented and developed the NHS111 service, working with commissioners and out of hour’s providers to improve the service that we offer. These have been challenging times and the service needs to develop further, with NHS111 integrating with clinicians to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate treatment in a timely manner.
To achieve this, we are developing the North East Clinical Assessment Service (CAS). This new dynamic service will be staffed by a wide range of clinicians, including GP's, Emergency Medical Consultants, Advanced Practitioners, Pharmacists and Nurses. It will also integrate with Psychiatric and Dental services to ensure that patients can pass through to services quickly and efficiently.
In addition, we are working closely with out of hours GP providers, Acute Foundation Trusts, GP Federations and other service providers to develop alliancing, breaking down barriers and integrating services to improve the patient journey and experience.
The North East Ambulance Service was also recently awarded the contract for provision of out-of-hours telephone assessment and home visiting services in South Tyneside.
These exciting developments will mean we are ready to meet future challenges, ensuring we can increase the number of patients managed in the community and reducing Emergency Department attendance, as well as ensuring patients who do require an ambulance are able to be seen quicker.
To achieve this vision we need you. Come and join us in shaping the future of Emergency and Urgent care in the North East. We can offer you the opportunity to work alongside a diverse range of clinicians, whilst developing telephone skills with regular feedback and support. Whatever your interests, we’ll make sure your skills are kept completely up to date with a CPD and registration programme.
Help us to develop a successful integrated urgent and emergency care service which is second to none.
