NHS 24 Scotland seeks new “nurse advisers”

NHS 24 in Scotland has launched a national recruitment campaign to attract more nurses to join its telephone service.

The campaign hopes to recruit up to 30 "nurse advisers" from bands five and six to work at call centres in Clydebank, South Queensferry and Aberdeen.

Nurse advisers will be specially trained to provide quality support over the phone, whether they be life-threatening emergencies or mild complaints.

Ann Ward nurse adviser at the South Queensferry contact centre says: "I enjoy the variety of patients that I triage along with the company and companionship that I have with my colleagues."

NHS 24 Scotland is to hold open days this July in Aberdeen, South Queensferry and Clydebank, where nurses can learn more about the service.
