Register with the Practice

Riverside Surgery offers online GP registration for new patients.

The registration process will take around 15 minutes to complete. You will need to complete the process in one session. You do not need your NHS number, but it could make registration easier.

We may ask you for:

  • details of previous GP surgery
  • basic health and medical information

The information you provide will be used to identify the correct medical records. It will also help us to offer relevant and appropriate healthcare services.

Other ways to register:

Print, complete and sign the Registration Form and New Patient Questionnaire then bring them into the surgery between 8.00am – 6.30pm Monday – Friday. You will also need to provide 2 forms of identification, one photographic and one to confirm your address.

All applications need to be considered, so it is important to please contact the surgery 2 days after Reception receive the form to check on your application. Please feel free to either call in or telephone 0151 645 3464.

Named Accountable GP

As part of the GP Contract, all patients registered at a GP practice are allocated a named accountable GP.

While you may see any GP you like for appointments, everyone has a named accountable GP who they are registered with who is responsible for their overall care. This will be one of our GP partners – Dr Kieran Grey or Dr Samuel Lodge. Please ask at reception to find out who is yours.

Can a patient choose their own named GP?
Patient will be allocated a named GP on the basis of whom they normally see. However, if a patient requests a different GP, reasonable effort will be made to accommodate their preference.
