There will come a time in every private consultant’s working life when it dawns on them that there are just not enough hours in the day (in fact, this is probably realised quite early on in their medical career!), but whether you are only just setting out on your journey into private practice, or you are an established consultant looking for change or support, one thing can be agreed on – a good medical secretary is an essential team member if you want your practice to run as smoothly as possible.
Grow your practice
An experienced and knowledgeable medical secretary is crucial if you are in the position where you wish to grow your business. At Designated Medical, our team are on hand to help with all your business needs:
- Coordinating meetings with new clients
- Proactively identifying new ways of working
- Event management
- Collating feedback so you have your finger on the pulse when it comes to the changes that need to be made to facilitate improvements to your practice
- Client and contact database management
Our medical secretaries know this industry, and do everything possible to make your practice a success.
Without a medical secretary, who will manage your clinics? Who can deal with queries on your behalf? Who will liaise with insurance companies? A medical secretary will take on these tasks, keeping your time free for what you do best – providing first class care to your patients.
Support & information
Your medical secretary, as the first point of contact for your practice, will be able to communicate to your patients exactly what they can expect in terms of service. Whether this is communicated over the phone, via email, or online, they will have an in-depth knowledge of all information relating to any treatments or procedures you offer, prices, availability, and much more – an absolute essential for any medical practice.
This in-depth knowledge is not something you will find in every candidate, which is why here at Designated Medical we only take on the very best. With Designated Medical, you can be confident that your practice is in safe and capable hands.
