Administration Staff - They perform important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records, summarising, and carrying out searches and practice 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.
Why do the staff ask for details regarding my request for an appointment?
The reception staff will ask for an indication of the nature of your problem, as they include the information in the appointment booking or telephone consultation screen. The clinician can then triage this during their clinic, to make sure there’s nothing that needs to be dealt with urgently. If you are happy to disclose the information, it will help to get you an appointment with the most appropriate clinician.
There is a midwife attached to the practice, who together with your doctor will look after you through your pregnancy and delivery. Please contact a Receptionist who can advise you and give you a telephone number so that you contact your community midwife.
The nurses are attached to our practice and do a wide variety of nursing work in people's homes working closely with the doctors who will arrange this care if needed. They have a direct telephone line 01424 857900, or messages can be left with the administration team at Arthur Blackman Clinic as this is where the District Nurses are based.
