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


Seriously - I think a lot of you who believe that receptionists are dragons are blinkered by your own predujices. Do you realise how little receptionists are paid? Guess...? It's not much more than the minimum wage and boy oh boy are they asked to put up with all sorts of demands from a population of people from all walks of life. They can't be all bad....I have just watched our kitchen cupboard fill up with tins of biscuits, boxes of sweets, packets of mince pies from patients of all ages who want to say thank you to reception for all the help, advice, smiles and support that they offer throughout the year. Stop complaining and start working with the receptionists to help you get what you want/need.
