We are looking for Permenant Patient Services Advisors to join us in our practice based in the vibrant Brighton centre.

About The Role

You would be the first point of contact for all patients at the practice. This would include booking appointments using the system, greeting patients on arrival and notifying the appropriate clinician. While in the waiting room, the patients would be in your care, and so you would need to observe them and notify the appropriate staff should they need immediate health requirements.

You would receive patient enquires via email, phone and in person, helping in a courteous manner. Some conversations may be of a delicate nature, and so you would have to maintain confidentiality at all times as well as be empathetic.

As you would be manning the reception desk, you would be ensuring it and the surrounding area is tidy and above all safe. You would be accurately keeping records and completing clerical duties such as filing, photocopying and faxing. You will also be processing repeat prescriptions where necessary.

As well as patients, you will be contributing regularly to the wider team, not only in staff meetings but also in supporting the Deputy Service Manager in public relations.

While you may not have worked in a general practice before, you will be a confident communicator who is able to speak to others in person and over the phone. You will be in contact with a wide range of people in different situations and from different backgrounds. As such, your empathy and sensitivity towards patients and private information is vital.

You will be able to manage your own workload without close supervision, being an efficient organiser. In line with this, you will also have experience in data input, ensuring all information is accurate on the EMIS & Adastra systems. Practice Plus Group is passionate about great healthcare. We believe that anyone should be able to access excellent care, whether via the NHS or privately.
