“I really enjoyed the Medical Secretarial Diploma, particularly learning all of the terminology. I have secured a position as a Medical Secretary in a GP surgery, and I know that this course with Pitman Training Croydon has helped me get this job!” Carol Murphy, Medical Secretarial Diploma in London, Croydon

“There have been a lot of changes within the NHS, and it made me feel that now was the time to update my skills. The Microsoft Office section of the diploma has been useful as previously I was using templates set up by colleagues and in house systems. Thank you to everyone at Pitman Training for being so helpful and welcoming.” Gillian O’Donnell.

“I liked that I now have the confidence and ability with computer skills which are helpful in the office, or anywhere! The help and kindness from the Pitman trainers was great. The course has given me an insight into learning new medical terminology and increasing my typing speed, (I’ve gone from 15wpm to 70wpm!), and more importantly the course helped me find a new job!” Naomi Knapp, Medical Secretarial Diploma in London, Notting Hill
