Riverside Medical Centre is a training practice. This means that we have registrar GPs (ST3) who are in the final year of their training. They spend a year at the practice from August. We also have FY2 doctors who are with us for 4 months starting in April, August and December. All of the doctors are qualified and are just going through the final years of their training under the supervision of the GP partners at the practice.
We do appreciate that this does mean that you may not see the same doctor all of the time but, if we did not have these additional doctors, we just would not be able to cope with the demand, so please bear with us.
Our practice nurses have many years of experience and play a vital role in caring for patients.
Practice nurses are qualified and registered nurses and our team regularly deal with the following:
- Baby Immunisations
- General treatment of Minor Injuries
- Travel Immunisations and advice
- ECG tests
- Cervical smears
- Flu and Pneumonia vaccinations
- Ear syringing

Healthcare assistants support practice nurses with their daily work and carry out tasks such as phlebotomy (drawing blood), blood pressure measurement and new patient checks. They may act as a chaperone when a patient or doctor requests one.
