Welcome to Riverside Medical Practice

A message from Dr Mehers as she prepares for the future

This is just a wee note to inform you all that I am leaving the practice at the end of May. I will be taking on a partnership at Munlochy and North Kessock surgery.

I am very sad to leave but this new job will be closer to my home.

Dr Zoe Anderson, who is lovely, will be starting on the 12th August.

I just want to thank all the staff and patients for making me feel so welcome over the last four years.

Kind Regards,

Dr Michelle Mehers

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Please assist our receptionists when you are asked for what may seem like personal details – the information is to help the doctor, nurse or healthcare assistant who is going to be dealing with your problem. All staff are bound by confidentiality protocols.

InSPIRE

In 2017, a national campaign launched to make everyone in Scotland of the way the NHS are improving how it uses information from GP patient records.   For further information please consult www.spire.scot or call NHS Inform on 0800 22 44 88. 

Chronic Medication Service/Serial Prescribing

Riverside Medical practice is encouraging all patients prescribed repeat medication to register for the chronic medication service (CMS). This is a NHS service provided by all community pharmacies. The pharmacist will provide you with a review of your medication and discuss any problems you have, enabling you to get most benefit from your medicines. If you are registered for this service your doctor may issue you a serial prescription, which lasts for 24/48 weeks, and allows you to get further supplies of your regular medicines direct from the pharmacy. Please refer to the community pharmacy, of your choice, if you have any questions and also to register you for the service.

Get Well, Keep Well

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
