Why does the Receptionist need to aks what's wrong with me?
It is not a case of the receptionist being nosey!
The reception staff are members of the practice team and it has been agreed by the GP's that they wouldask patients why they need to be seen.
Recpetion staff ask questions so they can ensure that you recieve:
- The most appropriate medical care.
- From the most appropriate health care professional.
- At the most appropriate time.
Receptionist are asked to collect brief information from patients:
- To ensure that all patients recieve the appropriate level of care.
- To direct patients to see the nurse or other health care professionals rather than a doctor, where appropiate.
Reception staff, like all members of the team, are bound by confidentiality rules:
- Any information given by you is treated strictly confidentially.
- The practice would take any breach of confidentiality very seriously and deal with it accordingly.
- You can ask to speak to a receptionist in private away from reception if you wish.
- If you feel an issue is very private and do not wish to say what this is, then this will be respected.
