As a Medical Secretary you will create and process electronic patient referrals through our eReferral system; competently and accurately composing referral letters and other documentation for patients.  You’ll follow up and complete tasks via EMIS and Docman, and resolve patient queries to help reduce GPs’ workloads.

You’ll be comfortable in liaising with hospitals and other medical providers to ensure patients are seen and contacted in a timely fashion, as well as being a point of contact for colleagues working in secondary care.

As a Medical Secretary, you’ll be educated to GCSE standard and have at least 2 years’ experience in office administration, preferably within the healthcare sector, although this is not essential. You will need to be highly IT literate and willing to learn new systems. It would be beneficial for you to have working experience of clinical systems, or other transferable system knowledge.

Primarily we’re looking for somebody who learns quickly and wants to be part of a busy and friendly team that has a real impact on patient care. You should have excellent attention to detail, organisational skills, and be completely comfortable working with IT packages and systems.

Clinical coding experience or medical terminology knowledge would also be an asset, although not essential.

You will receive full training within the role, a membership of the coveted NHS pension scheme, as well as 25 days annual leave (pro rata), generous NHS employee discounts,  free parking and more.

If this is you, we would really like to meet you.
