An opportunity has arisen for an experienced medical secretary to work within the Targeted Children's Services in Barking.

The Targeted Children's Administrative team supports children and parents across the borough and is integrated with many of the other paediatric services including occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, physiotherapy and children's mental health services.

The post holder will work alongside the team, supporting the clinicians and doctors in typing/formatting of complex medical reports and when needed child protection and health assessment reports.  The work will include some recording of information on spread sheets, diary management, minute taking etc. The post holder ideally will have knowledge of the RiO system, but this is not essential as training will be given.  The post will be for 4 days per week which can be negotiated.
