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.
