The Level 3 Senior Healthcare Support Worker programme helps individuals improve the overall health and well-being of society by providing quality healthcare with seniority–level expertise.
Senior healthcare support workers help registered practitioners deliver healthcare services to people.
As a Senior Healthcare support worker, your job is to:
Help registered practitioners in delivering quality healthcare services
Perform a range of clinical and non-clinical healthcare or therapeutic tasks under the supervision of a registered healthcare practitioner
Deliver quality and compassion-led healthcare and do so while following standards, policies or protocols.
Your duties can apply to various healthcare institutes like the hospital, community health, or daycare unit, birth center or midwifery-led unit, patient’s home, operation theatre, nursing care home, assessment center, schools, prison, GP surgery, charity or voluntary organization
You have to work individually as well as collaboratively with individuals, families, careers, and other service providers.
As a Senior Healthcare support worker, you have greater areas of duties and a larger role in making decisions and taking charge of your duties yourself. Your superior will review your account and you’re expected to be an experienced healthcare worker who demonstrates best practices and acts as a role model to others. You may also need to supervise or guide the less experienced staff in your team and follow all guidelines set by the Code of Conduct for Healthcare Support Workers and Adult Social Care Workers.
