CARE NAVIGATION

We have introduced this system into our practice to help to signpost patients to the appropriate clinician or service.  The GP team kindly request that you help our receptionists by answering a few simple questions so that they may direct you to the appropriate member of our team.  All of our receptionists have received formal training in care navigation.  Your co-operation is much appreciated.
