|Miss Gemma Roberts - Support Team (f)|
I joined the practice almost a year ago and have worked within healthcare for around 4 years, initially in health records at Fairfield Hospital and then as a Trainee Health Care Assistant on the Maternity ward at North Manchester General Hospital. I feel that our patients deserve a friendly and approachable support team and we make every effort to ensure our patients are helped in any way possible and the smooth running of the practice is upheld. I have also recently completed training to become a Health Care Assistant and offer appointments for blood tests and blood pressure checks along with our Practice Nurse. I am also a member of our support team where the majority of my time is devoted and the Carer's Advocate for the practice where i am responsible for increased awareness of carer's and the support that they require. Outside of work i am kept busy trying to keep up with my two children. In my spare time i enjoy socializing with friends, relaxing with family and exercising, when i get the chance!
I have recently won the Royal College Of General Practitioners North West Practice Receptionist Of The Year Award 2011 for the most outstanding contribution to Primary Care service provision or development by a Practice Receptionist in the preceding year. A recognition which i am very proud of. For more information on this award, click here.
