Reception & Care
As the customer facing element of the practice team, the veterinary practice receptionist is vitally important on a number of levels. Not only does the receptionist need to demonstrate the outward customer service skills, ability to multi-task and ensure the smooth running of front of house, but also must be involved from a clinical and commercial perspective too.
The receptionist is often the first and last port of call for both clients and colleagues alike, offering a valuable resource in time of need. With this in mind the receptionist needs to be a jack of all trades, although rarely are they master of none – friendly, meticulous, pro-active, efficient and compassionate, whilst remaining calm under pressure.
