Reception and Admin

Dianne Hollins, Suzi Pamment,Ruth Hughes, Anna Williams, Debbie Charlton, Sharan Jones

Our receptionists are the backbone of the practice; they are first to see or speak to patients when they first call or come to the surgery. They deal with all office duties and answer the telephones. They are all very nice, despite the ‘stereotype’ of the British Doctor’s Receptionist, but they also tend to bear the brunt of most frustrations and problems so please be nice to them in return!
