Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. A number of our healthcare assistants are qualified to carry out extended roles in support of dressings and long term disease health issues. They may also act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
