Receptionists

Receptionists are trained to assess your needs so that they can direct you to the right healthcare professional.

To do this they will;

Take some general details about why you have contacted the surgery

Help navigate you through health care services & systems

The GP is not always the best person to help you.

Our receptionists will take your name on arrival, answer your phone calls, make appointments and answer your questions as well as a long list of other responsibilities. They are here to help you but their job is extremely demanding, so please help them by understanding the problems they face when trying to please everyone. They aim to be pleasant and courteous at all times.

They may sometimes need to ask for some medical details if your problem can be dealt with by speaking to one of our clinicians on the telephone, but they will always treat what you say with the utmost confidentiality.
