A typical HCA at NCH&C will support patients with their day-to-day care including:

• Making and changing beds
• Helping patients to eat and drink
• Taking and recording basic observations
• Turning patients who are confined to bed to prevent pressure ulcers
HCA apprentices can work in ward based or community settings under the guidance and supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. You will have the opportunity to provide patient care whilst also studying towards a nationally recognised qualification.
