ADMINISTRATION AND RECEPTION STAFF
The practice has an extensive team of administration and reception staff who provide support to GPs and other medical professionals with delivering patient services of a high standard.
The team is led by Mrs Angela Marwood, Practice Manager, who is involved in all of the business aspects of the practice such as making sure that the right systems are in place to provide a high quality patient care, managing human resources, finance, patient safety, premises, equipment and information technology and also helping to develop extended services to enhance patient care.
The administration team provides valuable secretarial and clerical support to GPs and healthcare professionals, dealing with referrals, practice letters, results, updating patient records, running searches and carrying out audits.
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.
From time to time we have visits from medical students who may be present during your consultation (if you have no objection). They are only with us to observe general practice as part of their studies.
The practice is closed for one afternoon each month on a Wednesday (excluding August and December) to allow protected time for staff training. Details of dates are displayed at each surgery site. Should you require urgent medical attention during this time please telephone the practice and your call will be diverted to the NHS 111 service.
