Health (Clinical Healthcare) Support

Clinical support staff provide vital assistance to healthcare professionals in diagnosing, treating and caring for patients. In some cases, they are involved in looking after the general well-being and comfort of patients. These are all responsible and rewarding roles with a direct impact on patients’ lives. They also offer an ideal entry route to many careers for people with commitment and enthusiasm rather than academic qualifications.
