September 2017

Describe a Typical Day at Work:

In the morning I have a catch up with the Clinical Nurse Manager, I check my emails from overnight and reply to them or call any patients with queries that are urgent. I input bloods, referral letters, call patients and schedule appointments. I prepare files for outreach clinics and help to schedule these appointments. I help to organise patient events and create the presentations for these. I also help out the reception team when they’re busy, helping out and covering receptions’ breaks. Most importantly, I am always there for patients to help put their minds at ease and to be a friend during the difficult times.

Do you work in a Team or on your own?

I work on the Patient Liaison and Reception team.

What are the Best Parts of Your Job?

My colleagues – I love working on the team here at Waterstone Clinic, coming in everyday there is always a great atmosphere and everyone is always happy to help out when you need a hand.

Any Final Thoughts?

The work can be really fulfilling, especially seeing how happy patients are after a successful treatment here, that is always worthwhile.
