Their roles and responsibilities include answering patient enquiries by telephone and face to face, booking appointments, liaising with other members of the primary care team and administrative duties.

Our fully trained Receptionists, Secretaries and Administrative staff are here to help. They will often need to ask you further details when you telephone, this is to ensure they assist you as effectively as possible. They are bound by the same rules of  confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses.

The medical secretaries deal with all outgoing and incoming correspondence on behalf of the primary care team. They liaise with the hospital on the patient’s behalf to organise urgent appointments. They also deal with private non-NHS correspondence that requires payment to the Practice. This includes items such as Solicitor’s requests for copies of patient’s notes, medical reports and forms from the Benefit Office.

When private work is completed the Practice will issue an invoice and will require payment before release of information requested. Upon payment a receipt will be issued and this must be kept by the payee for future reference.
