 Mrs Scotson and Mrs Carey

The Reception Office Supervisors are Mrs Sharon Scotson and Mrs Michelle Carey. They are both responsible for the general administration and are well placed to help you with day to day enquiries on the telephone or in person. If you have any feedback or problems with the Front of house or back office functions their role is to assist you.

The Receptionists are there to help you. They have a difficult job to do, dealing with a constant stream of telephone calls and enquiries, so please be patient. When telephoning for medical attention the Receptionists may ask for a few details. They have been trained to make these enquiries so that you can be sign posted appropriately. They are bound by strict codes of confidentiality, as are all members of the practice team.

Our Receptionists are all trained Patient Advisors.

As part of our team, they have been trained to ask certain questions in order to ensure that you receive:

  • The most appropriate clinical care
  • From the most appropriate clinician/health care professional
  • At the most appropriate time

Patient Advisors are asked to collect brief information from patients:

  • To help clinician’s to prioritise their workload
  • To ensure that all patients receive the appropriate level of care
  • To direct patients to see a Nurse or health care professional
  • To help to direct patient to where they can find advice to self-manage their problem – ie local pharmacy or NHS choices/Self-care forum/My Life Warrington

Patient Advisors, 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 would deal with it accordingly.
  • You can ask to speak to the Patient Advisor privately; we have a small room available next to reception desk.
  • However if you feel an issue is very private and do not wish to say this will be respected.
