I have worked at CUH for 5 years, 2 years as a Housekeeper on Ward M5 and 3 years as Outpatients Receptionist. I chose to work here because I wanted to give something back to the hospital that had treated the care of my relatives so professionally and sympathetically.
My role as a Clinic Receptionist is first and foremost to assist the patients in any way that I can. The role goes beyond checking in/out patient appointments and booking follow up appointments, patient requirements take many forms and I need to be ready to meet that requirement. I get most satisfaction from going beyond the expectation of those visiting the hospital and raising the bar of patient experience.
This hospital is a great place to work, it is challenging but rewarding and gives me a great deal of job satisfaction to know that I have made a difference.
In 2009 I joined CUH as an Apprentice Medical Secretary, undertaking the Business & Administration NVQ Level 2 having left college with no plans to go to university. I completed the course in under 12 months and was lucky enough to secure a permanent position as a Band 4 Medical Secretary. In 2014, I moved into a Band 5 Executive Assistant role which gave me significant exposure and experience within multiple services. Here I learned invaluable and transferable skills about operational performance, which gave me the drive to progress. In 2015 I took on the role of Band 6 Directorate Support Manager within Surgical Services. This was my first management role and I learnt so much from my manager, colleagues and clinical teams around the running of the service. Now I work as a Band 8a Deputy Operations Manager in ENT (Ears, Nose & Throat), Plastic Surgery and Vascular Surgery.
CUH has given me the opportunity to develop and progress my career, and I would definately recommend it as a place of work and to build a rewarding career.
