Reception Team

Receptionists are your first point of contact with the Practice. They will assist you with all your enquiries and repeat prescriptions.  Reception staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses.


Our Receptionists are all trained Patient Advisers

Patient Advisers will provide you with a first point of contact which directs you to the most appropriate source of help. Staff who are Patient Advisers have undertaken appropriate training to make it easier for you to get an appointment with the most appropriate professional – this could be with a healthcare assistant, practice nurse, clinical pharmacist, Advanced Nurse Practitioner or your GP.

To help you access the correct service, when you call your practice, the Patient Adviser will need to know a little about why you need an appointment.

They will ask you a few brief questions as Patient Advisers have a number of alternative types of appointments available to them and they need to offer you the most appropriate appointment to deal with your problem.
