The Northern Consultation Clinic was a great place to work; opportunities for learning and growth, friendly atmosphere and flexible hours.
Pros: opportunity for learning
Cons: some days were long especially when there is a visiting specialist clinic
A fast-paced environment, however, starting at 8:45 am enabled preparation time before first patients arrived. Multi-tasking was essential as mail had to be handled simultaneously with admitting patients and manning the switchboard.
I learnt to make appointments using electronic booking and to prepare patient charts for upcoming appointments.
I liked the open-door management style which meant that the manager was accessible. Employee relations in the department was warm, friendly and helpful.
The hardest part of this job was the multi-tasking aspect and the most enjoyable was the cordial relationship with co-workers as well as being able to help patients and ineracting with them.
