Receptionists and Secretary
There are five part-time receptionists. All the reception staff have undergone extensive training. All our receptionists are available to answer your calls, take messages and deal with any queries. Sometimes, you may be asked for medical details in order that the receptionist can pass them to the doctor or nurse, who decides the urgency of the case or the advice to be given. This at times can be very difficult, so your understanding and patience is appreciated. The Doctor, and one of our receptionists are able to speak with you in Hindi if you are unable to speak English at all or English is not your first language. Our secretary deals with all the referrals and can be accessed via telephone option 3 Mon – Fri 11.00 till 13.00 except on Thursdays.
