"Staff well trained in understanding conditions"

I was very impressed that the reception staff at Selsdon Park Medical Practice had the required training to understand the urgency of me seeing a doctor at short notice. As a cluster headache sufferer, I needed prompt medication prescriptions to be written by a doctor, requiring a short notice appointment. When the member of staff on reception heard the condition I was suffering from - a rare primary headache disorder that many have not heard of - I was impressed that they immediately saw the urgency and found me a short notice appointment. It's a real testament to the training and quality of care that both medical and non-medical staff at Selsdon Park Medical Practice have the required knowledge to assess the needs of their patients.
