Administrators assist the Practice Manager with the administration for QOF and other enhanced services. They are responsible for recalls for annual reviews, scanning on patient letters and read coding them onto the system. They are responsible for summarising new patient records.

ReceptionistSara Dearnaley

My name is Sara Dearnaley and I have recently joined the surgeries at both Leyland and Chorley. I am thoroughly enjoying working with a very professional and supportive team, in a very interesting and varied role.  All my previous jobs have involved meeting and helping people, which I love to do. I moved to Lancashire in 2003 and love living in this area. Outside of work, I enjoy reading, cooking, adult colouring books and spending time with my husband, my nieces and nephews.  I regularly enjoy visiting North Wales which is where I grew up and still have family there.



The receptionists are there to help you. Anything you share with them will be treated with confidence. They are trained to assist you with any enquiries you may have regarding the services which the Practice provides and help you with queries such as test results, or anything you are unsure about.

The receptionists act on the GP's instruction and therefore we hold a zero tolerance approach to abuse of staff.
