In view of the recent global COVID-19 outbreak, Riverside Medical Practice has made the decision to limit face to face contact with all patients. You can still book a telephone consultation with a GP of your choice. If your clinician feels you need to be seen, they will give you instructions on how and when to attend the surgery.

Please note that pharmacies are now a little longer than usual to process repeat prescriptions. Please take this into consideration when ordering your prescription.
#HelpUsHelpYou by following the new guidelines about ordering medication. Only collect the amount you need so that we can help reduce the pressure and workload for GPs and community pharmacies.
Please note the practice is trying to reduce the amount on contacts with patients collecting prescriptions. With this in mind we strongly suggest that you choose a pharmacy convenient for you for your prescription to be sent to.
