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 never imagined being able to open up and discuss so deeply my early life abuse, held back by embarrassment and fear, with Dr Myskow – for the first time ever – I felt completely safe and supported; not judged or disbelieved on any level. I would say she genuinely cares and has helped me immensely”View more testimonials
