The team of receptionists aim to offer a friendly and helpful first point of contact with the surgery. They are a very experienced team, with more than 60 years of service between them. They are kept extremely busy dealing with patients on the telephone and at the reception desk along with the requirements of the Doctors, Nurses and other Healthcare Professionals.
In addition to their main duties of answering the telephone and greeting patients at the main reception desk they are also responsible for the issuing of repeat prescriptions, confirming test results, taking messages and dealing with queries, arranging home visits, registering new patients, dealing with the post, and scanning documents.
Paige joined the surgery in July 2015 as our first Admin Apprentice under the national apprenticeship scheme. She receives training and supervision in all aspects of the running and administration of a busy GP Practice and is mentored by an assessor from Weymouth College. She attends college once a week and is working towards a BTEC qualification in Business Administration.
