​We have the most comprehensive selection of clinical roles in urgent care

Urgent care centres are looking for highly skilled practitioners to support patients suffering clinical issues and who are not transferred to emergency rooms. These centres play a pivotal role to help offset the ongoing GP shortage and pressure on hospitals.

What is an urgent care practitioner?

Clinicians from a variety of backgrounds, including nursing, paramedicine, pharmacy or radiography often work as urgent care practitioners, helping support emergency and hospital services through urgent care facilities. They are responsible for working via telephone, through face-to-face consultation and/or home visits to provide care, treatment and support to patients and provide assessment and clinical decision making aligned to their clinical competence.
