Education for practice receptionists about maintaining client privacy at the front of house.
Privacy and respect are essential elements of quality health care and exceptional customer service, as well as being a key component of the RACGP accreditation standards for General Practices. Front desk and reception staff are the front door to your healthcare practice and have the first opportunity to impress patients.
Privacy and respect are a sense that the patient feels when they enter your reception room – body language, eye contact, a clean and tidy reception desk are all non-verbal cues that convey a sense of trust between patient and care provider.
