Remote Patient Monitoring Nurse

£30,000 to £45,000 | Full Time (40 hours) | Hammersmith, London (Hybrid)

Introduction to Doccla

We’re Doccla, the virtual ward company. We provide patients and clinicians with the transformative power of remote patient monitoring. 

Our customers are Hospital Trusts and Community Services that we partner with to deliver virtual wards. With Doccla, patients can have their care stepped up from community services or they can be discharged from a hospital ward to a virtual one. Patients get to receive treatment in the comfort of their own homes whilst health services become more efficient. Unsurprisingly, both the number of trusts we work with and the number of patients we support is constantly growing.

Doccla is a young company with big aims and a lot of momentum. We're solving real problems for patients and health systems. And we’re looking for dedicated people with a passion for healthcare to join us.

Whatever your role is, to thrive at Doccla, a can-do and action oriented attitude is essential. As is being a clear and open communicator who is receptive to feedback.
