Receptionists will assist you in making routine and emergency appointments to see a doctor or another member of the healthcare team, undertake repeat prescriptions, answer any queries or questions that you may have and offer any assistance that they are able to. They are not trained to provide clinical advice.

Please remember that at some periods during the day, particularly Monday morning, they are extremely busy and may not be able to answer the telephone immediately and we would encourage you to use the patient  access on-line booking service whenever possible to make or cancel appointments and to check results on-line where GP comments are seen.

It is a legal requirement that confidentiality of patients' records is maintained at the highest level by all staff.
