Healthcare Assistants

About Our Healthcare Assistants

Healthcare Assistants (HCAs) work under the guidance of a qualified healthcare professional, usually a member of the practice nursing team. They carry out tasks such as

  • Phlebotomy or venepuncture (drawing blood)

  • Blood pressure measurements

  • Recording ECGs

  • New patient checks

  • Health promotion (such as smoking cessation)

 

They may act as a Chaperone when a patient or clinician requests one or provide assistance to the Nurses. Healthcare assistants (HCAs) are becoming increasingly important and prominent members of the general practice team.
