Ms Tijana Kricka is the practice manager and she is responsible for the administration and overall running of the surgery in support of the doctors.
There is a team of receptionists whose job it is to make appointments, answer questions, deal with the many telephone calls and repeat prescriptions, and ensure the smooth running of the surgeries. This is a difficult and demanding task and your patience and co-operation is greatly appreciated.
There is also a small team of administrative staff who are responsible for ensuring that all relevant and timely information is recorded on both the computerised medical records and in the patient's paper notes. As you would expect, we increasingly record information on the computerised records.
Mrs Sarah Morris and Mrs Paula Henesy are the practice secretaries and their time is spent preparing referral letters and following up queries.
