Job Description

Advanced Clinical Coder

Use your expertise to speed the digitisation of vital health records

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), is the largest acute trust in the UK, with over 25,000 staff caring for over million patients a year. Combining 10 hospitals and community services from across Greater Manchester, we provide outstanding patient care and services.

Our ambition is to build on our leading initiatives and revolutionise the way we work together. That's why we're embarking on a programme of unprecedented transformation that will see cutting-edge digital solutions integrated across all our sites and services. This is an opportunity to develop your skills at the forefront of advances in healthcare management.

You'll work in one of the most progressive and innovative Informatics departments in the NHS, backed by significant multi-million pound investment. From introducing enterprise-wide Electronic Patient Records (EPR) to data warehousing and business intelligence that support the decision-making of clinical and operational staff, we're using technology to increase organisational efficiency and improve patient health outcomes.

The role

We're moving rapidly from paper to electronic records across the MFT organisation, to help us provide better quality and continuity of care - wherever patients are treated. A key member of this ongoing transformation, you'll extract diagnostic, procedural and surgical information from patient records, ensuring they are properly coded for digital records. Often working with very complex material, you'll ensure high-quality records while adhering closely to the rules, regulations and convention of clinical coding. You'll also work closely with clinicians and senior managers to develop coding policies and guidelines. Moving forwards you will be working with our new EPIC EPR system to provide you with more information electronically.

Skills & knowledge required

This is meticulous, analytical work that requires up-to-date knowledge of clinical coding, as well as a working knowledge of anatomy, physiology and medical terminology. Having passed the National Clinical Coding Examination (ACC), you'll be able to code a range of specialities to a high degree of accuracy. Along with outstanding attention to detail, you'll have excellent communication skills and the ability to influence senior managers and clinicians. And, in a role where you'll continue to develop your expertise by attending regular specialist workshops and refresher courses, you'll need to be ready to learn.

Sector-leading benefits

This major transformation will expose you to career-defining opportunities, further enhanced by access to high quality training and development initiatives. We will also provide you with a competitive benefits package that includes generous holiday entitlement, childcare support and a desirable NHS pension. Your work-life balance is important to us at MFT, so you will also have access to flexible working options (subject to the role and its requirements).

Diversity and inclusion at MFT

It is vital that our workforce is reflective of the population that we serve, so we hold an unwavering ambition to be a trusted employer for colleagues from every background. Discrimination has no place in our workplaces, so we celebrate diversity and we promote equality of opportunity. Joining an inclusive employer who values the contribution of every individual, you will find a workplace that is both friendly and supportive.
