For especially busy times, you can now find in the reception area a tablet. This is when patients during their arrival will be able to input their first or last name or date of birth, click OK and the instruction on the screen should indicate please go straight into the Waiting Room. If not, then you need to see reception before going through to the Waiting Room. The tablet is synchronised to the Practice Management System, so will indicate to reception and the Nurse/GP that you, the patient has arrived. Alternately if you prefer you can still be checked in by the receptionist.
