Ruth is the perfect “Woman Friday” every business needs. She takes care of business in every sense. Ruth is the person at the other end of the phone answering any queries, making the appointments or acting as a Sat Nav when needed.
Ruth deals with the accounts, invoicing and any problems concerning private health cover. She is the practice’s ‘go to’ woman.
Ruth’s background was in the financial services industry, following which she worked for a number of years as a medical receptionist in Boston Spa surgery. This experience is a perfect match for her present position. In addition she was born and brought up locally and as a result is a well known local figure. Without her organisational skills the practice wouldn’t run as smoothly. On top of which she makes a great cup of coffee! Ruth is a breath of fresh air…just don’t ask her to sing!
