GOBOWEN’S specialist Orthopaedic Hospital has launched an apprenticeship opportunity for individuals to have the chance to take their first steps towards a career in healthcare.

The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) is seeking apprentice healthcare assistants who will develop the knowledge, skills, and competence to work in a clinical setting while completing academic learning.

The apprentices will deliver all aspects of patient care, undertaking tasks delegated by a registered nurse and assisting with any intervention or treatments for patients as required.

Allen Edwards, learning and development advisor, believes it is a great opportunity for people looking to gain experience in the NHS.

He said: “This is a great opportunity for people to acquire valuable experience and the fundamental skills to deliver high-quality patient care, all while achieving a formal qualification and being paid.

“Successful candidates will be in post for approximately 18 months.

“During the first part of their training, they will be supported through the Care Certificate which covers the necessary skills needed to provide quality care. Apprentices will also work towards their Level Two in English and Maths.”

Rachel Owen, clinical placement support nurse at RJAH, explained that the apprentices will work on a ward or clinical department and support qualified staff in the delivery of high-quality patient care.

She added: “Successful applicants will be provided with the required supervision and support to develop their knowledge and behaviours to become compassionate and competent healthcare professionals.”

For informal enquiries, contact Allen at allen.edwards1@nhs.net or Rachel at rachel.owen13@nhs.net or 01691 404270.
