Clinical support workers assist healthcare professionals in the delivery of patient care, taking on tasks such as welcoming and preparing patients, explaining treatments and updating patient records[i]. The role is a great opportunity for anyone interested in working for the NHS to get their first step on the ladder.
Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust (MTW) is currently on a recruitment drive for clinical support workers and is hosting an open day on 11th June 2022 for people to find out more about what the role entails and what it’s like to work at the Trust.
People don’t need previous healthcare experience and joining as a clinical support worker could kick off a lifelong career in the NHS. It’s an opportunity to learn and develop acute care nursing skills, in a fast-paced, high patient turnover environment.
The Trust offers a supportive environment where staff members are given the chance to develop and progress their careers. New starters will attend the Trust’s Clinical Induction Programme which lasts for two weeks and involves travelling to both of the Trusts sites in Maidstone and Tunbridge, before starting work on the wards.
The open day takes place at the Reception Area, Main Entrance Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Tonbridge Road Royal Tunbridge Wells, TN2 4QJ on 11th June from 9am until 3pm. On the day there will be a presentation about the role and Trust, a tour of the hospital and the possibility of being interviewed for a specific role.
