Our practice nurses run our treatment room, deal with contraception, cervical smears, diabetes, asthma, epilepsy, hypertension and vaccinations and may refer you to one of the doctors if it is appropriate.
Our receptionists are fully trained and do a very difficult job well. Please remember that if you seem to be kept waiting or seem to be asked one or two irritating questions, they are carrying out our policy which is aimed at making the practice run smoothly.
They have to judge the urgency of your request so try to give them the necessary information. They have been trained to elicit this and are not just being nosey!
