Debra Burling We Fix Feet Clinical Receptionist

Clinical Receptionist

Hi, I’m Debbie and I work as a Clinical Receptionist at We Fix Feet – Sheffield Podiatry & Foot Healthcare clinic.

I’ll be one of your first points of contact either on the phone or in person if you visit us at our Sheffield branch, where my aim is to assist you with your appointments and ensure you are comfortable within our reception areas.

I have a background as a Medical Receptionist, which I am putting to good use in my current role.

Denise Mirfin We Fix Feet Sheffield Clinical Receptionist

Clinical Receptionist

Hi, I’m Denise and will be your first point of contact at our Sheffield branch.  I moved to Sheffield from Stamford, a lovely historic town in Lincolnshire where the classic novel by George Eliot – Middlemarch was filmed.

Away from clinic, I enjoy needlework and socialising.  However, best of all I enjoy my holidays when it’s time to relax and put my feet up – knowing that my colleagues have looked after my feet so well.

In the clinic, new patients can sometimes be a little nervous and I like to think I put them at ease in our reception waiting area before they see our Podiatrists – who really are lovely.  I enjoy chatting with our patients and like to keep reception nice for them each time they visit.
