bekind

Small acts of kindness, such as a ‘thank you’, can make a positive impact on someone’s day, and help staff feel valued about the difference they are making to people’s lives. However, some NHS staff have experienced abuse from people, which has impacted on their mental health. This is not ok.

Reception staff may ask you if it is an urgent problem to decide when to give you an appointment.  If you feel it is urgent please just say you need to see the doctor or nurse that day.   You may be offered an appointment over the next couple of days.  If you feel it is more urgent than that please let the receptionist know.
