The receptionists deal with enquiries, appointments and general administration. If they are unable to respond to your enquiry immediately relevant details will be recorded on the computer system, and the duty doctor will respond as appropriate. In this case you will be asked to contact the surgery later in the day when the doctor's comments can be passed on.
