Most of our contacts with patients come via the telephone – does body language really matter on the phone? How am I with my ‘heart-sink’ patients and am I fuelling this? The golden rules of good telephone call handling and using I.C.E. beneath the surface. Tips and skills for dealing with angry callers and remaining professional.
