Noticeboard


URGENT NOTICE - 



As a practice we are aware of the communication from NHSE and media this morning regarding the opening up of GP receptions and appointments as of Monday 17th May. As a practice we are reviewing how we can maximise patient access, whilst maintaining safety for patients and staff safely as guidance changes.


 


At Riverside Medical Practice we have continued to work and support patients throughout the whole of the pandemic and have responded to more calls from patients throughout the whole of the pandemic and responding to unprecedented levels of demand. In the period March and April 2021 alone we have dealt with more calls than in any other period on record, and as a practice will continue to meet the needs of our patients as best we can, whilst continuing to support the COVID Vaccination program.


 


In the short term we will continue to limit access to the premises, and offer a triage first service in order to ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate way and will continue to offer remote consultations and appropriate face to face appointments until a safety review is completed.


We can confirm that face to face appointments HAVE continued throughout the whole of the pandemic, however we reinforce that this is following a triage first service in order to maintain the best interests of both patients and staff.

Registrar


We will, from time to time, have one or more registrars in general practice attached to the team. A registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is undergoing a period of general practice experience. Very occasionally, the registrar will wish to video-tape consultations as part of their educational process. Should this happen when you have an appointment, your consent will be sought and, if you prefer, filming will be suspended.

Medical Students


Riverside Medical Practice supervises medical students. As part of their training, they need to observe consultations, undertake supervised consultations and sometimes video-record their work (for training purposes only). Therefore you may be asked if you would mind a medical student being involved in your consultation. Your doctor will understand if you prefer that this does not happen.
