        Our receptionists make sure your patients feel welcomed, valued and reassured from the very first call – because no one likes speaking to a voicemail.

        Why your practice needs a medical answering service.

        Whether you’re an individual health and beauty specialist with your own mobile service, or a member of a team in a clinic, managing phone calls is a common hurdle across the whole health, beauty, and medical sector.

        It’s quite common place now to make appointments and purchase products online for many business sectors but, due to the highly personal nature of health, beauty, and medical services, patients often choose to book their appointments over the phone, favouring a more human and personal touch.

        This makes the receptionist’s job especially demanding, trying to juggle patients and clients phone calls whilst also getting on with the highly administrational aspect of the role.

        For private therapists it can be even more demanding as they may not have a receptionist and instead rely upon their voicemail to hopefully collect client calls whilst they are treating patients.

        Answering calls for healthcare providers

        How does our healthcare call answering service work for you?

        If you or your team are with patients or unable to answer phone calls, our friendly and professional operators become part of your business and answer calls on your behalf.

        Your calls are answered with your requested greeting and from there we can take a message, access your online diary, transfer calls and various other tasks that you request.

        Call answering operators follow guidance from you so that callers are unaware that their call has been outsourced. Our professional receptionists can collect the information you need from the caller and send it immediately to the relevant person or team within your organisation.

        What information you would like us to collect, where messages should be sent and how and where calls should be transferred is all part of your bespoke medical answering service.

        Some Recent Case Studies:

        Leeds Chiropractic Clinic

        Situated in Leeds, this Chiropractic Clinic encountered problems handling a surge of patient telephone calls during busy periods. The clinic decided to trial Connect’s telephone answering service to better manage incoming calls and improve patient engagement.

        The service provided by Connect included a dedicated local 0113 number, a reassuring prefix for Leeds-based patients. Connect’s team of operators manage appointments, fields inquiries, and directs calls, ensuring no patient call goes unanswered.

        The results for the Leeds Chiropractic Clinic have been significant, with a reported 40% improvement in patient satisfaction during a recent exit survey. The reduction in administrative workload has also allowed their healthcare professionals to dedicate more time providing exceptional patient care.

        This case demonstrates how an effective medical call answering service can substantially benefit healthcare practices.

        Manchester Physiotherapist

        A solo physiotherapist in Manchester was frequently missing calls while attending to patients, and hiring a full-time receptionist was not financially viable. Enter Connect’s Medical Answering Service!

        The practitioner already had a well-known (to her clients) telephone number and so chose to simply divert that number to Connect, or as she likes to now call us, her medical office answering service.

        By redirecting calls to Connect, the physiotherapist ensured that every patient received immediate attention without interrupting ongoing sessions. Connect’s operators provide seamless call management, including scheduling appointments and addressing patient concerns. This integration allowed the physiotherapist to maintain continuity with their existing phone number, which helped preserve established patient relationships.

         

        Aesthetics Clinic

        Based in Harley Street, London, this aesthetics clinic offers a range of procedures including dermatology, anti-wrinkle injections, laser treatments and permanent hair removal. Most prospective patients find the surgery through online marketing channels, with a significant number discovering it through promotional platforms like Wowcher and Groupon.

        Our healthcare answering service works very much as an entire virtual reception with all phone enquiries coming through to Connect so that the clinic is no longer missing calls. Our receptionists answer all telephone calls in the clinics name, take payment and arrange bookings via the online diary service Cliniko.

        As the surgery doesn’t have the need for a physical landline for answering calls anymore, an 0208 virtual number was provided by Connect, this means that patients still recognise they are calling a London based surgery.
