The hard work of our managers enable our clinical teams to do what they’re here to do – treating and caring for our patients.
Managers are a key part of the NHS. Whether they are managing the talented, hardworking staff, controlling the finance or providing the equipment, buildings and services, managers are crucial to the delivery of effective healthcare.
At Northumbria Healthcare, we have a wide range of the management opportunities in our clinical services and our corporate functions and provide bespoke training programme to develop our managers of the future.
Administrative staff are the backbone of our organisation and our clinical services could not function without the office teams who work extremely hard to support them. The range of roles they perform is varied and included making appointments, issuing letters, answering calls on our switchboard, making sure patients’ notes are where they need to be and working in human resources to help us manage our 9,000-strong workforce.
Although many of our administrative teams work behind the scenes, some come face-to-face with patients including welcoming and checking in patients at receptions and working as clerks on wards.
