Reception

We are a team of nine receptionists who between us cover both Starcross and Exminster surgeries. Several of us have been with the Practice for many years, which just goes to prove that we have a happy team who enjoy the many varied and challenging aspects of our work.

Meet the reception team:
Sue Jeffery (Senior Receptionist), Liz, Jill, Gaynor, Sharon, Sandra, Ali, Bernadette and Jade.

Rachel Wreford (Data Administrator)

I joined the Practice in March 2016. I am based at Starcross Surgery.

Sharon Dibble (Data Administrator)

I joined the practice in April 2011 as a receptionist. I now work as a Data Administrator based at Exminster surgery.

Mandy Mather (Secretary at Exminster)

I joined the Practice in July 2009 and am based at the Exminster Surgery. I am part of a team of three secretaries who share the work between the two surgeries. I spend most of my day at the computer typing letters to patients, Consultants and various other companies. I also deal with many phone calls. I find the job very challenging and learning the medical terminology is very interesting - I never knew there were such long words for certain illnesses!

Janet (Secretary at Starcross)

I joined the Practice in March 2016, as one of three part-time Secretaries.

Bryan White (Practice Manager)

I joined Westbank in 2017 and my main role is the day to day management of both 'The Limes Surgery' in Exminster and 'Starcross Surgery'. I also play a vital role in the strategic development of the organisation. My job is to ensure that our patients are offered the very best care possible.

I am very keen to speak to patients about any suggestions for improvement they may have about the practice.

Outside the Practice, I am a very keen sportsman and musician. I am a Waterpolo coach and player, play Hockey and rugby, and have even completed an Ironman Triathlon. I also play with my son and daughter in the local brass band.

Ann Hull (Data Administrator)

I joined the Practice in 1994 as a Receptionist working at both Starcross and Exminster surgeries. As Exminster grew I spent more time there taking on administrative and computer input work as well as becoming Senior Receptionist.

Today I am a Data Administrator based at Exminster surgery.

Alison Sauze (Secretary at Starcross)

I joined the Practice in March 2013, as one of three part-time Secretaries.
