Our dedicated team of receptionists handle the efficient everyday running and administration of the practice, the receptionist performs a very busy and sometimes difficult job to ensure the smooth running of the practice. They're sometimes faced with situations out of their control, such as, surgeries running late or the doctors being called out on an emergency. If a situation does arise they will keep the patients informed but please remember it is not the fault of the Receptionist.

Your consideration & patience is much appreciated

Thank you

What is a GP Assistant?

GP Assistants, also known as Medical Assistants, support doctors in the smooth running of their surgery by handling the routine administration and some basic clinical duties enabling the GP to focus on the patient.

The hybrid medical assistant role was initially developed in the United States, where the focus is to deliver clinical and non-clinical duties supporting General Practitioners in their day-to-day management of patients, and specifically aimed at reducing administrative burden.
