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. They also perform other important tasks such as dealing with prescription enquiries and issuing some repeat prescriptions.
All the reception team carry out numerous tasks during the course of the day, all play an important part at Rainworth Surgery, some have particular areas of interest as well as the day to running of the surgery.
When your doctor has referred you to a hospital department she will usually dictate a letter for the secretary, this will generally be sent via the Gateway using the Choice & Book system. If it is a Private Referral you will be asked to collect a letter at the reception to take when you attend the appointment. Claire can also help with appointment queries and general enquiries relating to referrals.
Some examinations and reports are not covered by the NHS and a fee will be payable. A list of standard British Medical Association fees is available from reception; please ask if you are not sure.
