Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are the initial contact point for general enquiries. They will signpost patients to the right person/organisations depending on the health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription and results enquiries.
Rebecca is also our Carer Champion. As carer Champion she is able to act as the main contact person for carers, other staff members and local carer organisations. In order to successfully support carers, all staff are aware of her role and are involved in the identification of new carers for adding to the carers register. Self-identification is encouraged by having material on our Carers Board, items in our newsletter and on the website which also provide information about the benefits of being registered as a carer. A member of staff attends Carer Champion Network meetings where best practice can be shared. There is access to timely information, up to date resources and publications for carers, an update from Carers in Herts and training opportunities. Our Carer Champion will act as a voice for carers within the practice and be a key point of contact for carer information. Please ask at Reception or telephone 01923 262363 to speak to our Carer Champion.
