If there was a long queue at the desk, phone ringing, and a doctor wanting to speak to you, which order would you prioritise them?

4 Answers

Phone first because I can't see what is happening down the phone if there is something urgent happening. The person at the desk is in front of me so if they drop down, I will see it. As for the doctor, they are medically trained so can cope without me for five minutes. Less

I would speak to the doctor first, then the patient and then the phone. That way the doctor can go back to seeing patients while I then deal with the person at hand. Person phoning in will call back. Less
