Medical secretaries deal with consultants’ correspondence, making appointments, handling patients queries and liaising with other healthcare staff. Sometimes they may work under the title ‘personal assistant’. In a GP practice, they handle letters and phone calls about a range of different conditions. Working for a hospital consultant usually means medical secretaries are based in a specific department, for example, pediatrics or cardiology. This is a responsible job, as medical secretaries are expected to use their own initiative, make decisions and deal with patients and their relatives who are worried or upset about their illness. There is significant contact with patients, General Practitioners and other healthcare staff.
