Free NHS Health Check 

We have had information, which we are currently looking into,that an outside agency is contacting our patients informing them that we do not carry out these checks. Our patients are then being directed to various pharmacies in Preston and the surrounding areas.

If you receive a call from somebody stating they are from the NHS and inviting you to a free NHS health check please contact the surgery immediately to book your appointment with the clinicians here at Riverside.

Thank you

Partners In Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.

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, enables the three practices to join up their approaches in respect of local health care initiatives; the first of which is the Primary Care Support Scheme (Increased Access).

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.


medicines on pharmacy shelvesYour local pharmacist is a highly trained healthcare professional who can give you advice on common illnesses and the medicines you need to treat them.

Most pharmacies have a quiet area away from other customers where you can speak to the pharmacist more privately.

Visit your local pharmacy when you are suffering from a common health problem which means you don’t need to be seen by a nurse or doctor.

Visit the NHS Choices website to find out more about local pharmacies, including opening hours, contact details, and details of the services they provide.

If you need any specific support in relation to pharmacy services, you can contact NHS England, which is the commissioning organisation for pharmacy services.
