Five key qualifications to look for when recruiting a GP practice receptionist


I started nearly 10 years ago as a receptionist in a GP surgery. Oh my god I have never encountered so many rude people in my life. Yes I understand people are in pain and worried. But that person in front of you is abiding by the rules set by the partners of your surgery. Yes I have been there with the " dragon receptionist" but people need to wake up and understand that it is their doctors who set the riles...not the front line staff!!
