Receptionists

All reception staff are fully trained and ask for these details in order that we can help you in the most appropriate way. Our receptionists are very busy at certain times of the day and we ask that you be patient. The Receptionists ease the flow of patients for the Doctors and Nurses and keep the practice running smoothly. They are here to help you.
