Some things we’re really proud of in IUC are; the high quality of our services, as rated by the CQC, great patient feedback and experience, a family feel to our work environment and being a forward and progressive company who have been an integral part of the IUC system since its inception.

Our Integrated Urgent Care model provides people with access to urgent health services 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Practice Plus Group is leading the way in the design and delivery of a new model of Integrated Urgent Care. Our new service builds upon our experience of answering 2.5million NHS 111 calls each year and delivery of our urgent care services: out of hours, urgent care centres, minor injury units, walk-in centres and general practices.

Callers to 111 will speak to one of our highly trained call handler to assess their need over the phone. Our clinical hub is made up on an experienced team of both Call Handlers and Clinical Advisors, including health advisors, nurses, pharmacists and paramedics. They can provide detailed assessment, advice on treatment options, support patients to care for themselves at home and arrange urgent care, if required.

We hold the contracts for six NHS 111 services, two of which form part of integrated urgent care (IUC) contracts and therefore include an out-of-hours GP service.

We operate from the following 111 call centres;

  • Bristol
  • Dorking
  • Southall
  • Ipswich

Within our service there are a number of opportunities to develop both clinically and non-clinically and as our service grows we are always offering support to those who want to take that next step and develop their career.

Below are just a few examples of the opportunities for development across our 111 service:

  • 111 call handler
  • 111 clinical advisor
  • Call centre supervisor
  • Call centre manager
  • Senior health advisor
  • Clinical supervisor
  • Clinical lead
  • Pathways coach/trainer

All call handlers are required to complete NHS Pathways and 111 specific training courses when you join us, in order to be a licensed operator. Training doesn’t stop there, we also support you through your role with further coaching and mentoring, as well as opportunities to develop and excel your career.

Working with 111 is a demanding but highly rewarding career where you’ll realise you’re making a difference to patients who use the service every day.
