VACANCY: Medical Receptionists/Care Navigators

It’s an exciting time to be joining Ashford Medical Partnership.

On 11th March 2019, three well established practices merged to become Ashford Medical Partnership. Willesborough Health Centre, Singleton Health Centre and St Stephens Health Centre serve a practice population of over 33,000 patients.

The practices are all located in the heart of Ashford and are approximately 2.5miles apart. The sites are within easy reach of Junctions 9 and 10 of the M20 and we are a few minutes from Ashford International train station.

The current workforce is led by our 8 GP Partners and we have around 110 Clinical and Administrative staff.

We are a friendly, proactive and forward-thinking practice.

Ours is a fast-paced environment, but one which is supported by a strong team-ethic and in which continuing professional development and opportunities for specialisation are encouraged.

We are looking for someone who will be able to hit the ground running and is interested in front line healthcare. Candidates should note that the NHS is ever busy and therefore the role may be challenging, but we have exciting plans ahead and you can rely on a supportive and friendly environment in which to develop your skills.
