Welcome to our page for Receptionists/ Patient Advisors

This page is dedicated to the development, education and training of receptionists/patient coordinators in Oxfordshire. Receptionists/patient coordinators are at the heart of the general practices team and we are working on events and programmes to develop and support you.


Non Clinical apprenticeships in primary care

Apprentices combine working with studying in order to gain qualification and valuable professional skills. As well as taking on someone new, apprenticeships can be used to improve the skills of current employees.

Apprentices must be

  • aged 16 and over
  • paid at least the minimum wage ( on apprentice scale)
  • employed for a minimum of 30 hours per week
  • 20% of apprentice time will account for job training

There are a wide range of non-clinical apprenticeships, which can be a great way to fill a particular need in your practice. As well as your practice providing on-the-job training, apprentices will study with a training provider of your choice.

Contact the Oxfordshire Training Hub to find out more.
