Reception Team: Maralyn, Jo, Elaine, Sharon, Wendy, Mandy, Kristina and Laura (Apprentice Receptionist)
Our receptionists are your first contact with the Practice. It is their job to advise and guide you and any information they receive is treated in the strictest confidence. If you are willing to provide them with details of your enquiry, they will then be able to assist you in the use of our range of services.
Our staff are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the Doctors and Nurses. They have a difficult job to do, especially in dealing with large numbers of patients who visit and telephone the surgery each day. They have to try to keep both the Doctors and yourselves happy and in order to do so, may have to ask what appear to be unnecessary questions. Please remember that they are only doing what they are asked to do by the Doctors and, by providing the information they need, you are helping them to help you.
Access to Medical Records
Access to medical records can be arranged within the scope of the relevant laws - details from the Practice Manager. The request for copies of medical records needs to be in writing and charges may be made for the provision of this facility.
