Mrs Joanne McNicol

Is the Practice Administrator and will deal with all general admin office duties. These include Read coding and Summarising Patient Notes. The Administrator also deals with the Patient Call screen, website, records patient's attendance and organises immunisation campaigns such as the flu and Shingles clinics. 


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.


Mrs Avril Waddell will liaise with other health agencies such as hospitals and clinics on behalf of the GPs and will be able to follow-up any queries regarding referral. Once you have been allocated a hospital appointment any queries should be directed to the hospital or clinic concerned. Mrs Waddell also deals with enquiries regarding reports and medicals.
