Riverview Medical Centre – a guide for patients with ear wax

We are currently updating our ear wax information - please check back soon for the updated information. The updated information will be posted on the Clinics and Services tab. We are currently waiting on a new ear syringe machine being delivered.

Adverse weather conditions 

On occasion we may need to offer a limited emergency only service on days when severe weather warnings are in place.  If this happens please contact our usual number 01505320208 and you will be given option 'to press one' to get through to a duty drs mobile telephone.  This should only be used if you have an urgent medical emergency. We hope you can understand the safety of all using our service is paramount.  The web site will be kept up to date with information advising if we are open or not.  We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.  If your condition is life threatening please call 999 for ambulance service. If your appointment this week is not urgent we encourage you to cancel and rebook.

If you do not wish to travel and your appointment is not urgent please reply No to your recent text message to advise you are cancelling your appointment. Alternatively please call us on 01505 320208 to advise you are cancelling your appointment.  We have limited GPs and staff in so this is very much appreciated. 

Please self care where you feel able and use NHS choices,, your local pharmacy (if open) and NHS24 for advice.  Please only attend emergency departments if you have a serious accident or have a life threatening emergency.

If you can also be patient with staff and clinicians who are covering for other colleagues we would be very grateful.  This may mean you wait a little longer for your call to be answered or to see your GP.

Many thanks from The Practice Manager
