RIVERBANK PRACTICE PATIENTS PARTICIPATION GROUP
18th October 2013
The Riverbank Practice Patient Participation Group (RPPPG) is undertaking a survey to obtain patientsí views on the current provision of services at the Practice. The survey will take place between
Monday 21st October 2013, through to Friday 15th November 2013, inclusive.
The RPPPG would be very grateful for the help of practice patients. A survey form can be obtained at the Riverbank surgery from Monday the 21st October 2013. Alternatively, a survey form will be available with repeat prescriptions, which patients collect from their chemist.
The completed forms, which are anonymous, should be returned to Riverbank Medical Practice where a collection box is provided for them, on, or before, Friday 15th November 2013.
Riverbank Medical Practice
Thurso KW14 7AR
Two GP practices in Caithness will merge this month bringing benefit to both patients and staff thanks to closer working relationships between the teams. Riverbank Practice in Thurso and the Lybster Practice, based within Lybster village, have always worked closely together but the merger will now bring a formal arrangement into place.
To mark Scottish Apprenticeship Week (01-05 March 2021) NHS Highland is highlighting the positive impact that being an apprentice can have on the individual and also bring to an organisation. Catriona Naughton, Senior Practice Manager at Riverbank Medical Practice in Thurso knows how important it is to invest in the professional development of her team and includes offering employment opportunities to the young people of Caithness.
From April, Riverbank Medical Practice in Thurso will become a salaried practice run by NHS Highland. The practice, which has a patient list of 6000, has been managed by NHS Highland since December 2012 but advertising for an individual or group to take over the practice was not successful so the Board will now take on responsibility for the practice on a permanent basis.
