Name: Mary-Anne Blades
Job Title: Ward Clerk
Department: Trauma and Orthopaedics
A typical day involves: answering the phone, relaying messages to patients and staff, checking patients details are recorded correctly, filing, faxing, photocopying, e-mailing internal and external departments, requesting equipment be repaired, ordering stationery and other medical equipment, booking ambulances and district nurses on-line, inputting data for various audits.
No two days are the same.The best aspect of my job is knowing that you are part of a team that contributes to a patient's recovery. Some days it may only be a small part that you play—but all parts are vital.
