Living Well Partnership is made up of 7 GP surgeries working innovatively to change the way we deliver great patient care and fast, effective patient communication. We have re-mapped what a traditional ‘Receptionist’ role looks like, and our Patient Services function has 3 distinct teams a Patient Administration team, a Front Desk Administration team and our dedicated Call Handling Team.

The Call Handling Team are an essential form of contact for our patients, this means you are likely to come into contact with Patients who could be vulnerable or scared, and require extra support. We’re looking for confident and caring individuals to represent our values and take the time to make our service personal, ensuring every Patient leaves Living Well knowing how important they are.

What we’re looking for!

As a Call Handler you’ll be joining a busy, fast-paced team answering calls to our 40,000+ patients. You will be the facilitator and administrator of appointment booking, maintaining accurate patient records, and actioning daily tasks on our clinical systems; but most of all you’ll be the first person to make our patients’ experience a great one.

We’re looking for candidates who have a genuine drive and enthusiasm for helping people. Previous experience in a call handling or customer service role would be of advantageous but not essential, however this is a patient contact role so a desire to work with members of the public is a must. You’ll thrive while working under pressure and feel great accomplishment in exceeding your call handling targets!

We have part and full-time positions available with a number of working pattern options, let us know what you’re looking for in your CV and covering letter.
