The reception/administration staff assist in the efficient day-to-day running of the practice and support the services we provide. When you telephone the surgery the receptionists will ask you a few details. They have been trained to make these enquiries so that we can help you in the most appropriate way. Strict confidentiality is maintained by all staff on any matter relating to the health of our patients. The receptionists will make appointments for patients to see the doctors, treatment room nurse or practice nurse. They can give patients the results of some laboratory tests. Transport needed for hospital appointments is also arranged by the receptionists. Reception staff are here to help you, but their job is very demanding and they are often very busy, so please be patient.
The practice nurse is primarily concerned with promoting healthy living and preventing diseases. We strongly advise our patients to have regular check-ups for lifestyle, weight and risk factor analysis and measurement of blood pressure. She monitors asthma, diabetes, smoking cessation, COPD, ischaemic heart disease and anti-coagulation. Patients are invited by letter to attend the appropriate clinic, but a patient may also make an appointment via the receptionists to see the practice nurse.
