"reception staff"

About: New Victoria Hospital / Renal outpatients

(as the patient),

I would like to commend the reception staff in the new Victoria renal clinic. Each time I have visited the 2 ladies are so kind, friendly and patient with me and all other patients. They have to put up with such a lot but always speak politely and kindly to patients. It is a great start to a clinic visit which can be traumatic for me.

Response from Lorna Gray, Patient Experience, Public Involvement Project Manager, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde

Dear AnnieMac,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the reception staff at the renal clinic - I'm sure they will be thrilled that you have made the effort so leave such lovely feedback and I look forward to passing it on to them. Our staff on reception are very important in that so often they are the first person a patient sees and so are key in setting the tone for the visit. When people are particularly anxious, this makes all the difference. Referring to your other story, I am so glad that every member of staff in this clinic has worked together as a team to create a such a professional and caring atmosphere.

Thanks again,
