It will depend which area you’re working in.
There are over 30 roles that sit under the umbrella term of ‘Healthcare Support Worker’, based in seven different settings; mental health, learning disabilities, community care, acute, midwifery, children’s services and primary care.
If you work in inpatient services, for example in an acute hospital, a mental health hospital or a learning disabilities unit you might work in a shift pattern of day and night shifts. If you work in a GP surgery, outpatient clinics or in a community setting, you are more likely to follow 9am-5pm working hours.
