Secretaries and Administration Team
Our secretaries take time to support the team and patients, managing medical referrals, reports and liaising with nearby hospitals. They provide the key link between primary and secondary care and strive to provide all parties with the best network of help and support that they require.
The administration team liaise between Patients and Clinical Professionals and take responsibility to provide essential and necessary care to support all patients, also taking the time to develop further efficient care in order to offer an unprecedented service to all. They also summarise medical records, run clinical reports and organise the in-house clinics.
Receptionists provide an vital link for patients with the Practice and are your initial point of contact for general enquiries. We have a large team of full-time and part-time reception staff, all of whom are trained to provide a friendly and efficient service to all. They will try to answer all non-medical questions and will deal with each matter with the strictest confidence. They can provide basic information on services, assist in the booking of appointments, take requests for and give out repeat prescriptions and results, direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query.
