I joined the Practice in January 2020 as Assistant Practice Manager having previously worked for the NHS for over 5 years. My role is to support the practice team in the safe running and development of the practice. I am proud to work for the NHS and with the fantastic team at Kirkburton Health Centre.
I have recently taken on the position of Assistant Practice Manager having previously been Reception Manager. I am still involved within the running of reception but now deal with different elements of managing the Practice. I started at Kirkburton Health Centre in 2014 and I have enjoyed all elements of the different roles I have had. I am passionate about delivering excellent patient care and I am proud to be a part of the team at Kirkburton Health Centre.
I have recently joined the administration team at the practice. My main role is the scanning of medical documents onto the computer from hospitals and other health care providers. I have had relevant training to help me fulfil this role including readcoding and medical terminology. My other duties include supporting the practice team. I take great pride in all aspects of my work.
I joined the practice in September 2017 as an apprentice customer service practitioner. Finishing the course in September 2018, my role then became permanent. It is enjoyable working in reception as every day is different. On the flip side, admin gives me the time to organize all the documents for scanning and to manage the incoming and outgoing medical records. I also take the responsibility of Data Officer. This involves patient recalls and clinical reporting.
Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.
