In addition to our clinical team we have a team of helpful and experienced reception, admin and secretarial staff who are committed to assisting and supporting our patients. To ensure they can do this as efficiently as possible they may need to ask for further information or to check information in your medical records when you telephone the surgery.
They are bound by the same rules of confidentiality as the doctors and nurses. Please show the same courtesy to them as you would to the rest of the team.
