IT IS WITH REGRET THAT WE NEED TO INFORM YOU THAT DR D'COSTA HAS RESIGNED FROM THE PRACTICE. HE HAS BEEN WITH THE PRACTICE FOR 5 YEARS NOW AND WILL BE REALLY MISSED BY BOTH PATIENTS AND STAFF. WE WISH HIM WELL FOR THE FUTURE.
WE HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO REPLACE DR D'COSTA SO WE CURRENTLY ONLY HAVE 4 PARTNERS INSTEAD OF 5 THEREFORE THERE WILL BE FEWER APPOINTMENTS THAN PREVIOUSLY. WE ASK THAT IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENT, THAT YOU PHONE AND CANCEL IT (EVEN IF IT IS THE SAME DAY) SO THAT WE MAY OFFER THIS TO OTHER PATIENTS.

|Receptionists 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. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.|
