Practice Receptionists & Document Management Clerk
Sally Magee, Tracy Crane, Sam Alley, Kelly Harshaw and Sarah Lawson are our fantastic team of practice receptionists.
Reception do a very difficult and demanding job dealing with a high volume of telephone calls and enquiries coming from every direction. When you telephone for medical attention the receptionist will ask appropriate questions in order to judge the urgency of your request and to direct you the most appropriate service or clinician to help you obtain the best outcome. This could be attending a local pharmacy for over the counter medication or medical advice. They have been asked to do this by the doctors who have given them training in this role, but the information you give them will always be treated in confidence as they are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses and entire practice team.
Jacqui Skuse is our document management clerk who also from time to time covers reception. We also have a team of bank receptionists who provide reception cover during periods of reception annual leave and sickness.
