    If you read this post it's a great description of the different between the roles of a HCA in band 2 and band 3.

    As juno commented above, I've said before about the difference between bandings. However, you'll notice that many places call them different terms.
    You'll come across nursing assistants, care assistants, health care assistants etc. Theyre basically the same job just called different in many places.
    It's all about the banding and what the specific role responsibilities are when you look at the individual job you're doing.
