Brief Description

We have exciting opportunities for ACPs, ENPs, PAs and UCPs to join our East ED Streaming Team as a Front Door Streamer.

We are currently transitioning from a Streaming service to a UTC model over the next couple of years as per ongoing discussions with ESNEFT.

The Front Door Streamer role makes up part of the Streaming Team at Ipswich hospital emergency department.

You would work alongside ED staff, the streaming clinician and the streaming administrator.

The shifts are Monday – Sunday 09:00 – 14:00 and 14:00 – 19:00.

The main purpose of the role is to meet and greet all patients attending the front door of the ED department. You will then carry out a short assessment on every patient to ascertain the best place for that patient to receive care. This may be in the ED department, with the streaming clinician, in the minor injury service or may require directing the patient to a community service such as a pharmacy.

You would be responsible for escalating issues such as long waiting times and busy waiting rooms to the appropriate person.
