We are a training practice which means we will have medical students working in the surgery on four week attachments. All their work with patients is supervised closely by the GPs. They are not yet qualified and cannot prescribe. You may have an appointment at the surgery or receive a home visit that involves them. The receptionist will let you know at the time of booking and you can say if you would prefer them not to be present.
|The practice manager is involved in managing all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality of patient care, human resources, finance, patient safety, premises and equipment and information technology. The practice manager supports the GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services and also helps to develop extended services to enhance patient care.|
|Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.|
