The Patient Pathway Co-ordinator (PPC) – Medical Secretary will work within dedicated specialty Divisions to facilitate the smooth running of the patient journey by ensuring that there are coordinated and streamlined administrative processes that revolve around the patient and their individual needs.

We provide care for the residents of three diverse London boroughs. Most of our 7,800 permanent staff live in Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge and the majority are from black, Asian and minority ethnic groups. We also provide healthcare services to people in south west Essex, and specialist neurosciences services to the whole of the county.

Our services include all the major specialties of large acute hospitals, and we operate from two main sites – King George Hospital in Goodmayes and Queen’s Hospital in Romford.

We’re pleased to be leading the way in reducing the time our patients wait to get the treatment they need. The Elective Surgical Hub at King George Hospital is one of eight to be accredited as part of a national scheme; the Care Quality Commission has raised the ratings for urgent and emergency care at Queen’s and King George hospitals; and data released by NHS England showed that the Trust was the most improved in 2023 for reducing waits for emergency care.
