Patient Navigators attend to patients on the phone and in person. They coordinate and organise appointments and documentation to facilitate the smooth running of the Practice and support delivery of quality patient care. The Patient Navigators have a very demanding role. They are here to assist you and we would ask you to be patient during peak times, when the staff have to handle a large volume of calls and enquiries.
