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

Comment

Practice reception staff do a very difficult job, often in upsetting circumstances and for modest pay. They do this because they are dedicated to being part of a team caring for patients. Let us try to appreciate the vast majority of our health care teams who are hardworking and caring. They deserve to be both valued and respected. Any business which had to cope with ever increasing workloads, open-ended demand and reducing funding, would be unlikely to continue without the dedication of the team within it.
