About Riverside Health Partnership

Riverside Health which serves the North Nottinghamshire market-town of Retford as well as its surrounding villages. Riverside work from 4 sites, Riverside Health Centre at Retford, Riverside Harworth at Harworth Primary Care Centre, Riverside Misterton and Riverside Gringley. Gringley surgery has a Dispensary. We are an established, well-respected, popular GP Training practice with 6 GP partners (5M 1F), 3 salaried GPs (3F), 5ANPs, Practice Nurse Prescribers and 2 Practice clinical pharmacists.  Being a training practice we also house GP registrars.

The practice covers around 19,000 patients.

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 Kartik Gopidas and Dr Helen Kirby-Blount are both our Riverside trainers. All doctors are committed to helping the training scheme at both surgeries.
