Information regarding your - ‘Named Accountable GP’
From 1st April 2015, all practices are contractually required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients (including children). Your named accountable GP is responsible for your overall care at the practice.
All new patients who have registered with the practice after 1st April 2015 will be registered with a named accountable GP on registration.
Your named GP will be assigned based on the 1st letter of your surname as below:
A – D Dr Forbes
E – K Dr Kennedy
L – R Dr Khattab
S – Z Dr Nair
Any patients registered prior to 1st April 2015 have also been allocated with a named accountable GP.
You will be notified of your named GP in due course, however should you wish to know this information please speak to a member of the team when you are next in the surgery.
All Patients: Please note that being assigned a named accountable GP does not prevent you from being able to see or speak to any GP in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
Roslea, Ryan's and Riverside Medical Centre....working in collaboration!
The partners at the Riverside Medical Centre are pleased to announce the beginning of a more formal working arrangement between the three medical centres serving Bamber Bridge and its surrounding areas. The agreement, signed earlier this week will enable the three practices to join up their approaches in respect of local health care initiatives; the first of which will be the Primary Care Support Scheme - an initiative intended to enhance the health needs of the 'over-75' population.
The Riverside Medical Centres partners are very much looking forward to exploring the opportunities, and dealing with the challenges, that such an arrangement brings, but firmly believe this is a step in the right direction to enhancing primary care health service in the locality.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription /booking an appointment. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our Patient feedback function . Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
