Principal Medical Ltd
£18,000- £20,000 per annum(pro rata for part time)

PML is a not-for-profit organisation, run by GPs in Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire, with over 15 years’ experience of delivering high quality NHS community and primary care services. At PML, everyone counts and we are focused on working together to develop and deliver services that we know people want and need, so that patients get the best care for their circumstances.

Principal Medical Limited (PML) provides counselling services through TalkingSpace Plus, the IAPT service in Oxfordshire, which is a partnership between Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, Oxfordshire Mind and PML.

We are looking to hire an enthusiastic and motivated Referral Co-ordinator to support our team of Counsellors, who are based in GP surgeries across Oxfordshire. We are looking for someone who is organised, assertive, patient and empathic, with strong communication and time management skills and a high level of literacy and numeracy.

Key skills required for the role include the ability to deal sensitively over the telephone with patients who may be experiencing strong emotions, plus a good working knowledge of Microsoft Outlook and Excel to keep track of and analyse data.

Some knowledge of counselling or previous experience of working in a healthcare setting is desirable, but full training will be provided to the successful candidate.

The role will be based at PML’s Head Office in Bicester.

Please note that interviews will be held during the week commencing 5th October 2020.

We believe that local care providers, who know and understand the health needs of their own patients, and who are used to working collaboratively in their region, can provide the best quality and most cost effective integrated primary care services. We work to develop services we know people want and need so that patients get the best care options for their circumstances.

After over a decade in business, we have a proven track record of success in delivering a diverse range of services and we are continually looking to bid for new contract opportunities and to recruit motivated and ambitious staff to join us.
