They arrange appointments, check in patients on their arrival, take requests for home visits and repeat prescriptions. They are also available to pass messages from patients to the doctors and to help patients and new people, generally wherever possible.
They file the many individual communications received from outside sources, plus all are involved in entering patients’ medical data onto the computer system.
Inevitably, it is sometimes necessary to make personal enquiries - please do not be offended by this.
