Imagine A Day As a Health Assistant: Tasks and Responsibilities

As a health assistant, I would be responsible for providing support to healthcare professionals in various settings. This could include hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities.


My specific tasks and responsibilities would depend on the specific needs of the healthcare facility where I am working.

However, some common duties for me as a health assistant might include:

  • Assisting healthcare professionals with patient care tasks, such as taking vital signs and preparing patients for examination or treatment
  • Cleaning  and organizing medical equipment 
  • Providing support to patients and families, such as answering questions or providing emotional support

In order to be successful in this role, I would need to have strong communication skills, be detail-oriented, and have a strong understanding of medical terminology and procedures.

I would also need to be able to work well in a team and be willing to take on additional tasks as needed.

By undergoing the health assistant programme at Wecare College of Health Technology, I know that I would gain the knowledge and skills needed to provide high-quality support to healthcare professionals and help improve patient outcomes.

For me, this would be a rewarding and challenging career that would allow me to make a positive impact on people’s lives every day.
