Providing care for people, right when they need it is what YourGP is all about. And it’s not just our doctors that are guided by this ethos – every member of our team is inspired by this approach, including Samantha Thomson, one of our Medical Receptionists. Her busy role involves organising appointments and managing our clinicians’ schedules, and although it’s a fast-paced job, she always has time to give each and every patient a warm welcome to make them feel at ease.
Caring for others is something that has always come naturally to Samantha so it’s no surprise she’s dedicated her life to this – Samantha is studying Social Care at Edinburgh College and also works as a Relief Support Worker looking after adults with disabilities. Even in her spare time she’s forever thinking of new ways to help others, for example she’s currently in training for a sponsored run to help raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Of course, we’ll be cheering her on every step of the way!
“I was surprised to meet a GP with such a ready smile and willingness to give me the time I needed. I felt we had a conversation as equals and that she actually heard what I said. A couple of blood tests, a physiotherapy referral and I am better than I have been in a very long time”View more testimonials
