Receptionist

We are currently looking for reception staff to work Mon/Tue 13.30 – 19.00 and Wed/Thu/Fri 08.00 – 13.30. This could be split between 2 people.

We are a busy GP surgery looking after 13,000 patients. You will need to be a multi-tasker as reception involves a variety of jobs. We are looking for a dynamic person who loves interaction with people, someone willing to go the extra mile. Alongside answering the telephone and making and booking in patients, you will be liaising with the local hospitals and other healthcare professionals. Working for the NHS does mean that you would be expected to work during national emergencies like the Covid-19 pandemic.

A patient’s first impressions of our surgery are made at reception, therefore a sunny, caring and compassionate nature is essential. If you are a patient of ours, we would ask you to register with another practice due to a conflict of interest.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, our normal working practices have changed and most are unlikely to go back to how they were. You will need to be able to adapt to new working practices, often at short notice. Staff and patients are quite safe here at the surgery. Our doors are currently closed and we are greeting every patient at the door and escorting them to the consulting rooms. We are disinfecting door handles regularly and have a screen up at reception ready for when we open the doors again.

Afternoon Administrator

We are currently looking for an afternoon administrator to work Monday – Friday, 13.30 – 18.30. This involves a variety of tasks.

You will be responsible for stock control throughout the practice. This involves a methodical approach, checking weekly, purchasing supplies, unpacking deliveries and ensuring rotation of stock.

You will be responsible for co-ordinating our minor surgery clinics and this involves, getting patient paperwork together, liaising with Ashford & St Peter’s hospital and our clinicians here. You will be booking appointments for these clinics and talking to patients.

You will be a link between carers and the practice, assisting them with grants and giving advice relating to other sources of help.

As a multi-tasker you will also be trained to cover other administration and reception roles as this helps with sickness and holiday cover.
