Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and They are trained to signpost you to the most appropriate clinical member of staff or service that you require. The reception team make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries and patient registration.

Receptionists require access to your medical records in order to do their jobs. They, like all members of our staff (medical, admin, secretarial) within the practice, are bound by the same rules of confidentiality and have a legal duty to protect your information and privacy.
