Our receptionists are now trained Patient Advisers. Patient Advisers will direct you to the most appropriate clinician to make an appointment with - this could be with a Healthcare Assistant, Practice Nurse, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, clinical Pharmacist or your GP.
They can also help you with others sources of help or advice - including the voluntary sector, who can support people with a wide range of needs. To help you, our Patient Advisers will need to ask you’re a few brief, confidential questions. By providing this information we can make sure you see the right person for your care.
Thank you in advance for your support.
