Receptionists & Call Handlers

Our receptionists & call handlers provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query.  They also perform other important tasks such as giving details or recent test results and messages from our GPs, issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries.

We are often asked why our call handlers and receptionists need to ask what is wrong with you when you wish to make an appointment.

Both call handlers and receptionists have been directed by the GP Partners and management to ask why you need to be seen and based on your responses you will receive the most appropriate medical care, from the most appropriate health professional, at the most appropriate time.

Your information helps clinicians prioritise phone calls, appointments and home visits, and ensures that all patients receive the appropriate level of care.

Call handlers and receptionists, like all staff, are bound by confidentiality rules, and any information given by you is treated strictly confidentially.   If you do not wish to discuss your health needs directly with our staff then you may wish to use the online portal or one of our touch screens in the privacy rooms.

Remember, our staff are not being difficult or intrusivethey are following specific directives set by Wistaria & Milford GPs and Management in order to get you the care you need.
