A message from our Chief Medical Officer Dr Sivanthi Sivakumar

Welcome to HUC where we put the patient at the start and heart of our care. We offer a wide range of opportunities for clinical professionals such as nurses, paramedics, pharmacists, GPs and others.

HUC is an incredibly dynamic organisation and if you choose to work here, you can be certain of new opportunities and challenges. No two days will be the same.

We want to attract people who relish the opportunity to be part of an organisation that is making health provision smarter, faster and more responsive to patients’ needs. People who want their contribution to count.

We embrace change and invest in technology and innovation to improve outcomes for our patients. We also believe in great outcomes for our colleagues, and can offer you structured progression and plenty of opportunities for learning and development.

Fantastic patient care is front and centre of what we do, and how we do it. This means that those who choose to be part of our team can be confident that the values that motivate them will be shared and respected.

Whatever your experience or background, HUC is a place where you will have the opportunity to make a positive difference to people’s lives. But it’s also a dynamic organisation that will encourage you to embrace new ways of working if it means even better outcomes for patients.

Work environment

We have a wide range of clinical opportunities in our teams, from our strategic to our local management teams to frontline clinical colleagues. These include GPs, Urgent Care Practitioners, Advanced Care Practitioners and Nurses through to nursing and paramedic colleagues working in our NHS 111 contact centres as Clinical Advisors or Auditors.

Choose to work here, we can promise you personal and professional reward. On a personal level, you’ll change lives; perhaps even save lives.

As a Clinical Advisor in our NHS 111 service for example, alongside non-clinical colleagues, you would manage urgent and non-urgent calls from patients, members of the public and healthcare professionals, such as GPs, nurses and pharmacists. You would use your professional and medical judgement to assess callers, making the appropriate referrals or give healthcare advice to help patients manage their symptoms at home.

We all share a passion to provide high-quality care to our communities – and there is a wide range of settings for our clinicians at HUC. You could work in a contact centre or face-to-face with patients; at an Out of Hours (OOH) or Primary Care base, in our Urgent Treatment Centre, our General Practice in Luton or visiting a patient’s home.

Patient feedback

"HUC offer such an excellent service. I feel very fortunate to have had access to it. On the advice of NHS 111 I attended A&E and was diagnosed with appendicitis. I believe that the healthcare professional I spoke to saved my life."
