New doctors join the team at Riverside

We’re delighted to announce that four new GPs will be joining the team at Riverside across January and February.

Dr Angela Ruthven joins the Practice on 7 February, with Dr Graham Mackenzie following later in the month and a further GP shortly after. A fourth GP, Dr Elske Tolkamp, has recently completed her GP training with us at Riverside and now joins the team on a permanent basis.

Dr Richard Fairclough, GP Partner, said: “We’re sure our patients will join us in welcoming our four new GPs to the Practice, joining our already-strong clinical team of 17 doctors, five specialist nurses, two treatment room nurses, specialist paramedic and three phlebotomists.”

“At this time when GPs are in incredible demand across the country, it’s great to see that so many of them have chosen to join Riverside both this year and in 2021.”

“Access challenges remain and we absolutely appreciate that these can at times cause frustration for our patients. Continuing to focus on recruitment and retention is one of the most important things we can do as a Practice, to ensure that our patients can access high quality care.”
