The receptionists are your links with the rest of the practice. They will try to help you in any way they can and the more information you are able to give them, the better they will be able to assist you. Any information they ask from you is treated with the strictest confidence. It would help us if all calls could be brief, to ensure that lines are kept free for urgent calls.
