I am upgrading my telephone system and I need to come up with a script for the auto attended (press 1 for… press 2.. etc.) and also a script for a promotional message to be played when the patient is hold. Would anyone be willing to share their script with me please to give me an idea of what to put on my new phone system?
Ours says press 1 for making, altering appts/payments, press 2 for practice manager, press 3 for pt care co-ordinator. The manager and co-ordinator have their own voicemails recorded in case they are not there. We do not have holding music/promotional info just every now and again says you are currently in a queue the receptionist knows you are waiting please continue to hold. The cost of putting anything more on was working out too much.
I recorded the following for my Practice…
