The Riverside Partnership has two surgeries. Our main surgery is Riverside Health Centre which serves the North Nottinghamshire market-town of Retford as well as its surrounding villages. The Riverside Harworth Medical Centre is in the former mining town of Harworth on the Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire border area. We are an established, well-respected, progressive and popular 8 Doctor practice with 6 male Doctors and 2 female Doctors. The practice covers over 11,800 patients. Approximately 9800 being served by the Retford based Riverside and 2000 being served by the Harworth based practice.
We practice and value traditional family medicine. Our GPs have specialist interests in diabetes cardiology / stroke medicine, women’s health, palliative care medicine, dermatology and substance misuse medicine.
Riverside has an excellent nursing team of experienced senior nurses and health care support workers/phlebotomists. Our clinical team is supported by highly skilled and approachable managerial, reception and administrative teams.
We are also a GP training practice. The practice trains qualified doctors on their way to becoming future general practitioners, and provides a wealth of expertise and information to support trainees. Dr K Gopidas is the trainer for both Riverside and its Harworth branch. All doctors are committed to helping the training scheme at both surgeries.
For patients in wheelchairs, there is a ramp leading up to the surgery and disabled access throughout the building.
The reception team can book telephone interpreting for a range of languages. An interpreter can also be pre-booked for a specific consultation if required. Please let reception know in advance if you require this service.
