Care Navigation Starting Soon!
The Practice is currently training our Reception Staff to become Care Navigators. This means that they are prepared to help direct you to the best service for your specific health needs. Our receptionists are here to help you get it right. The receptionist might be able to suggest more appropriate professionals such as:
- Family Services
- Support Groups
Please don't be offended if they ask you what the problem is when you ask for an appointment.
