Why does the receptionist need to ask what’s wrong with me?
Our reception staff are important members of the practice team, and it has been agreed that they should ask patients “why they need to be seen”.
We have trained our reception staff to ask certain questions to help make sure that you receive the most appropriate medical care, from the most appropriate health professional, at the most appropriate time.
