111 Clinician

Are you a clinician looking for a new challenge? NHS 111 needs your help.

The NHS 111 service is our non-emergency telephone service which offers urgent health care assessment to callers; our 111 service answers in excess of 20,000 calls every week in the West Midlands alone. Within the first year of taking over the provision of the 111 service, WMAS took over 1.4 million 111 calls, assessing and advising patients throughout the outbreak of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Based at our busy NHS 111 control room in Brierley Hill, our dedicated team of clinicians are on hand 24/7 to complete in-depth clinical assessments of patients via the telephone. They use the NHS Pathways clinical triage system and their specialist skills and experience to further identify the individual needs of each caller and provide the best clinical advice, enabling patients to access the most appropriate source of care.

Recruitment Process

Our 111 Clinician roles are advertised via the NHS Jobs website (www.jobs.nhs.uk) where applications can be submitted.
