Administrative secretaries’ main duties include secretarial work for chief nursing officers, social directors, and chief medical officers. In addition, there are a variety of office, human resources, information, economy, and communication functions.

The central duties of department, office and service secretaries include:

  • Processing of referrals
  • Implementation of prescriptions
  • Transcription of digital and speech recognition dictations
  • Text processing and translation of patient medical histories
  • Customer service
  • Archiving and document management duties

Our unit’s department secretaries are placed in different departments and outpatient clinics. Transcription is partly centralized to the writing center. The translation team translates patient texts, when necessary. Most department secretaries work in care units.

At the outpatient clinics, the main secretarial tasks consist of customer service, receiving patient registrations, and checking personal data. In addition to these, the secretaries answer the telephone and do so-called paperwork, including e.g. entering price brackets for visits in the system and sorting through daily mail.

Office work varies greatly from one department to another. However, for the most part, the responsibilities include ordering laboratory tests and other examinations prescribed by a physician during the treatment period, arranging possible after-care, and booking appointments.

All permanent jobs will be advertised on our webpage and Kuntarekry. We’re also in need of summer substitutes and short-term substitutes.
