Using the NHS Pathways IT system and your own clinical expertise, you will support the Health Advisors within the contact centre and help assess the patients' needs, guiding them to the most appropriate service or outcome. The patient may come through to you as wanting detailed medical advice or to be given information about appropriate out-of-hours services. However, while we are a non-urgent service, some calls can be emotional and life-threatening, and there will be times when 999 services (such as an ambulance) may need to be despatched.

You will need to complete the full NHS Pathways and system training to equip you for the role and you will be supported by Supervisors and Clinical Advisors. Our next training courses usually run on a monthly basis and it is essential that you can commit to every session of the training. At the beginning of the NHS Pathways training you will be provided a workbook to review and complete. Initially this can be a little daunting but this pack will provide you with all the information that is going to be covered during the course. The course itself will give you the skills required to become a NHS 111 health advisor but we will require your commitment and dedication during the course as there will be assessments that you will be required to complete and pass. Please note that although our full time courses run on a monthly basis, our part time courses run depending on service requirements. If you require a part time course and we do not have one available, we will make a note and contact you as soon as we have further dates confirmed. Additional Important Information NHS 111 is a 24/7 service operating 365 days a year which is non-emergency telephone service providing patients advice to the most appropriate urgent care service they require.
