Medical Secretary


Medical Secretary in General Practice

We have an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated, experienced medical secretary to join our enthusiastic and friendly general practice team.  We are located about 10 miles from Bath, in the historic market town of Corsham.


You will work alongside our current medical secretaries who provide a high standard of secretarial and administrative support to both our GP, Nursing and clerical teams.


The ideal candidate must have strong communication and organisational skills and be able to work within a team as well as autonomously. The ability to multi-task and work at all levels is vital. The position requires a good understanding of medical terminology, excellent secretarial skills, excellent communication skills and ideally some experience of working within a healthcare environment. We would consider applications from candidates with experience of a healthcare environment (ideally in primary care) but less strong secretarial skills.


We are passionate about our practice and our staff and patient welfare is paramount to delivering excellent healthcare. Our staff act professionally at all times to deliver an efficient and caring service.


We are ideally looking for 20-30 hours per week, but would be flexible for the right candidate.  We would also consider a full-time role. The ideal candidate needs to be flexible as there is a requirement to provide cover for annual leave and, in the event of sickness, for colleagues within the team.  


Salary: £17-19,000 pa FTE dependent on experience


We welcome informal discussions or visits: please contact James Bury on 01249 712232 to arrange.
