The Medical Assessment Unit and its Ambulatory Services are expanding with exciting new service developments planned; as a result we are actively seeking experienced admin support to be part of our team.

As part of your ward clerk role you will work closely with the nursing and medical teams based on MAU, providing their clerical and reception support. You will be expected to maintain high standards of record keeping, filing whilst liaising with other departments within the hospital and outside organisations such as GP's, other healthcare professionals and other hospitals in the best interest of the patients.

We are looking to recruit staff who have exceptional IT, record keeping skills and a knowledge regarding confidentiality and data protection. If you believe you have good customer service skills with pleasant and professional telephone and intra personal skills then please apply.

NHS experience is desirable but not essential.

Closing date: 27/01/2019




Our values guide everything we do. At all times, we aim to:

  • Demonstrate compassion
  • Strive for excellence
  • Respect diversity
  • Act with integrity
  • Listen and support others

Our teams of care professionals work with patients and their families to support peoples’ independence, health and wellbeing. We provide support to avoid hospital admissions, and if an admission is necessary, we try to make each patient’s stay in hospital as short and effective as possible before working with them on a safe discharge home.

In our most recent staff survey, our staff voted us in the top 10% of NHS provider organisations to work for and we also came out as the top provider in the South West for our overall results. Our patients (through the Friends and Family Test) regularly report an average of over 95% satisfaction with our services.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the Resident Labour Market Test. For further information and to self-assess the likelihood of obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, please visit the UK Border Agency website. Note: we will be unable to obtain Tier 2 sponsorship for Bank positions.

Please note that we may close this vacancy early if we receive a high volume of applicants.
