Wow. Is the doctor 15km away too?  :-)     

The tag applies .. the place a visitor goes to for info etc

So yes... it is not about the 'desk' that is used to separate it from weeding reception, GPS reception, etc.
I'll have to make that clear in the tag! The name is the best I could come up with. Not too late to change it if someone has a better name?

Note on the distance to the Doctor .. here in Australia 'we' have the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) ..
  the Doctor can be 1,000 km away, not far in a fast plane.
