GP Surgery Telecommunications

Increasing demand for UK healthcare – and the resulting pressure on organisations to manage it – is a well-known issue. With budgets tight and resources stretched, any initiative that helps make processes more efficient and treatment more responsive is welcomed.In such a critical environment, a reliable solution is essential and Premier Patient Line, as part of the Premier Choice Group, can provide it.

With experience in bespoke telecom solutions for the Healthcare Sector since 2001, they are ideally placed to ensure you receive the right call solution for your specific surgery needs. As a result, you’ll be able to manage more appointments (and miss less), give patients an all-round better experience, offer relevant advice directly over the phone, and even help them help themselves with self-service call features.

Some of the services your practice may require, which Premier Patient Line provides, include:

  • improved telephone systems
  • state of the art call services
  • integrated mobile phone services for staff members
  • innovative patient access technology
  • refined call recording and logging systems
  • disaster recovery support and advice

Premier Patient Line also provide bespoke solutions which complement the individual duties of your particular surgery. Every solution is built with two important things in mind, effective communication and telephony systems, and effective patient access solutions.

Patient Access
One of the biggest patient complaints is that they aren’t able to get through to the surgery in order to make an appointment. Premier Patient Line can help you improve the communications between your surgery, staff and patients.

 

Telephone Systems
Effective communication and telephony is extremely important for modern GP surgeries and practices of all sizes, but it is not always easy to identify the right solution. Premier Patient Line have been helping surgeries for over 15 years.

We signed up with Premier in March. The order process was fine and Marie came straight back to us when we had any queries. There was a slight glitch beyond Premier’s control during the installation and a slight delay in the broadband for the SIP which is now happening next week but the engineers were great and kept asking if we needed anything. There was no downtime as such, just a few teething problems. We are still getting some ghost calls which the engineer has raised with BT but we’re happy to give them 5 stars for our experience so far!

We've been with Premier since 2012 but just moved sites and renamed our practice. Our account manager Dan was cool but always is with us. Everything went smoothly and the engineers were great - they just need to come back to sort the SIP port. It was all brilliant and it was nice to feel supported during the stressful time of moving site!

Premier have just taken over our lines, calls and put in a new phone system at our surgery. Mark was good and the engineers were great. There were a few hiccups which they are working on at the moment but there was very little downtime. We’re just waiting for one of the engineers to come back to us to get the hiccups sorted.

We’ve just switched our lines and calls over to PPL and got a new system too. The whole process was painless and James was great. The engineers were great although we do have one thing outstanding but they are sorting this for us. As promised, the switch-over was painless and there was no downtime – I blinked and it was done.

We joined Premier Choice in 2015 but we’ve just added call recording with our new account manager Dan P who was fabulous! The engineers were very good. We had a little confusion after the install as we thought they were coming back but then they didn’t need to. We need a bit more training on the system and some of the messages need changing but they will get this sorted for us. Other than that it’s been very good and the service they have provided has always been good. We would recommend them to anyone, whenever I go to forums and someone else is looking at telecoms I always recommend Premier.

We’d rate premier 5 stars after our experience with them. We joined in 2015 but just added call recording. Marie sorted the contract with us which was fine. The engineers were very helpful and kept us up to date but we’re still waiting for some training. There was a little bit of downtime but it didn’t impact the surgery at all.

Brilliant service again! We’ve used Premier in two other surgeries which is why I used them Danny was lovely and took us through the order for our new system and moving our lines and calls over. The engineers were lovely, brilliant – I can’t fault them. We didn’t even notice the switchover and there was no downtime. There are a few small things that still need to be done but we have spoken to Matt who is dealing with this.

We upgraded to a new system at the end of 2017. Our account manager Dan was no problem, the engineers were great and all work is complete. I don’t think there was any downtime but I wasn’t in. We joined Premier in 2013 so have been with them for a while now and happy to rate them 5 stars.

We’ve had excellent service from start to finish! All the work has been completed but they are coming back to do the SIP port. We did have some minor downtime but they did have a lot to do as the BT box was a mess so I wasn’t surprised. James was brilliant and the engineers were excellent.

We met Premier Patient Line at Management in Practice in October and Danny came to see us soon after to take us through the order process which couldn’t be any easier. The engineers were lovely and even gave us a fuse for one of our plugs which was very handy! All the work was completed and there was no downtime when we switched over. We’ve had a great experience with them and they offer a really good service.

My surgery signed up with Premier Patient Line in August 2016 but we added call recording to our practice at the end of 2017. Mark came back and took us through the order process which was fine.

We recently switched over to Premier Patient Line to help us cut costs and it couldn’t have gone any smoother. Mark took us through the order process which was wonderful and so far the installation has been completed in line with our expectations. The engineers (Rob, Reece and Mick) are very nice and have been fantastic throughout, and we didn’t have any disruption. 5 stars!

We’ve just had 4 sites taken over by Premier. The order process was good but there was a bit of confusion with regards to how many systems had been ordered. There was also a bit of a mix up with delivery on the headsets. The work wasn’t quite up to our expectations and Premier will have to come back to make some changes and give us some training on call recording. However, the engineers were very good and there wasn’t any downtime when we switched over. The communication between head office and the engineers wasn’t great which was a shame. The installation didn’t go perfectly but overall we’re happy.

We’ve been with Premier for almost 10 years now and have just had a new system put in. Dan was excellent and the order process was brilliant. The installation went well and Rob was great.

James organised our installation for us and the order process was very good. We couldn’t be happier with the installation. Our engineers, Tony and Ian, were great and very helpful in explaining everything we needed know. If we weren’t sure about something, they would explain it again until I was happy with it. We did experience some issues in the switch over but this was the BT Openreach engineer, not Premier Patient Line. The engineers were very accommodating and they made sure we were happy with everything before they left.

Have received excellent service and would highly recommend Premier Patient Line. The whole process was dealt with very professionally by people who were competent and understood the way that GP Surgeries operate. The team received full training on operating the system and the most important part is that if there is a problem they are at the end of the telephone to help out immediately.

We received a first class service from all of the Premier team in respect of the phone upgrade.
Everything fully explained in detail by Gareth and he kept in touch throughout the process and offered advice and support when required.
The installation was trouble free thanks to the assistance and expert knowledge of Dan .
Would certainly recommend to other Practices.

I know that it is very rare for people to say thank you and we are all too quick to complain but I would like to pass on my thanks to your company and especially with regards to one of your members of staff.

This week you may know that we had our new telephone system installed and Tracey Houghton was the lady in charge along with her lovely engineers. Tracey was absolutely fantastic. She has helped us tremendously, written protocols and has recorded the Surgery messages. There are too many people that make complaints and do not ever praise people when it is due. Tracey is an absolute asset to your company.

I did thank Tracey whilst she was here but would be very grateful if you could pass on our thanks once again.

We have now had our new telephone system in place for just over a month and we love it. The reporting and auditing tools are fab and we use the overview screen every morning between 9am - 10am to monitor call demand and log in to help answer calls so that patients dont have to wait in the queue for more than a minute or so.

I had been researching telephone systems to replace our old system and found Premier Patient Line to be the most helpful and best system for our practice. The install went without a hitch and we barely noticed the engineers as they went round installing the new system.

Tracey was wonderful, helping us with the phone messages and how best to utilise the system to the best advantage for both staff and patients. Thank you to everyone at Premier for all your help and support. Fab service! We look forward to working with you for many years.

Ian the engineer spent 2 days on our upgrade. Cannot praise him highly enough, he was very thorough and so helpful. Anyone thinking of an installation or upgrade should request Ian! Our calls are now cheaper after the upgrade.

Premier Choice Telecom installed our new system last week. We are very pleased with the functionality, the ease of use makes managing incoming calls far more effective than our previous system. The experience for patients is 100% better and offers greater flexibilty for changing things if we need to. The engineers knew what they were doing and got on with the job, listening to what we wanted and acting upon it. I would recommend this company.
