GP Medical Receptionist – West Somerset Healthcare

An opportunity has arisen for a medical receptionist to join our friendly and supportive surgery team.

The successful candidate will enjoy working with people and be able to maintain a calm and professional approach whilst working in a busy and intense environment.  Excellent communication, organisation and interpersonal skills are essential.

As the first impression of our practice, our receptionists need to give a positive and warm welcome to patients, professionals, family members, carers and others contacting us in person or by telephone.

West Somerset Healthcare provides GP services to our list of over 10,500 patients from our main site in Williton and branch surgery in Watchet.

The post is for 27.5 hours per week and the successful candidate will need to be flexible to provide additional cover in the event of colleague absence.  Regular hours will include 6.30pm finish times during the week and there is a requirement to cover Saturday mornings on a rota basis with the reception team.

We offer a competitive salary, generous annual leave entitlement, and our staff are eligible for the NHS pension scheme.
