As a recognised name within the healthcare sector, TPP Healthcare has recruited for NHS and private Medical Receptionists, on both a temporary and permanent basis.
Responsibilities & Duties for Medical Receptionist Roles
As a Medical Receptionist, you are the first point of contact for patients and healthcare staff, either on the telephone or in person. Duties as a Medical Receptionist include booking appointments via the medical database, answering calls, transferring calls to relevant colleagues or departments, taking accurate messages, keeping the waiting room tidy and general administration as required.
Skills Required for Medical Receptionist Jobs
Knowledge of medical databases would be a distinct advantage to gaining a job within the NHS; the most widely used are EMIS Web, SystmOne, Vision and PAS. Private medical organisations tend to have their own in house systems which can be learnt. Medical Receptionists need to be well presented, articulate, professional and be able to work quickly and accurately in a sometimes fast paced environment.
