Our 6,000 staff serve a growing population of 750,000 across North Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.
Health Records Department
The Health Records team at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust provide a range of services across five different sites, ensuring that patient records are available, either physically or digitally, for the various patient appointments, procedures, audits, requests for information (both externally and internally) across the Trust.
The Health Records Department currently has a vacancy for a full-time Health Records Senior Clerk on a Secondment or Fixed Term Contract for a period of 12 months. If you consider that you meet, and can fulfill the required criteria, we would like to hear from you.
We are looking for an enthusiastic person to join the Health Records team. The successful applicant would be responsible for overseeing the team with a number of elements relating to the provision of case notes for clinics, inpatient admissions/day cases and other general requests.
A general level of education is essential, and experience in patient administration, handling of case notes and/or supervisory clerical experience within the last 12 months would be an advantage, but not essential as full training will be provided. Experience with filing systems, excellent organisation and communication skills plus a good level of computer skills are a must, as is working to tight deadlines and the ability to prioritise own workloads.
Applicants should be aware that it can be a very manual role at times involving lots of lifting and moving of records in a dusty environment. Manual handling equipment is provided and each member of staff is required to undertake appropriate Manual Handling Training. Duties will be varied and include the development and monitoring of the departments training processes/procedures, dealing with inquiries and completing audits/reports using Excel and the Trust’s numerous computer systems including e-Track and Patient Administration Systems. Part of the role is to provide day to day operational support and training to members of the Health Records team in conjunction with the Senior Team Leader ensuring that all information regarding new processes and practices is disseminated in an appropriate and timely manner.
Please note this post may involve occasional travel to all hospital sites including Peterborough and Stamford Hospital.
