Riversdale is a training practice.  From time to time we have both medical students and registrars with us and registrars.  It is possible that sometimes you may be asked if they can be present during your consultation with the doctor or nurse. If you can help in this way, the registrars and students are always very grateful. However, if you think you will feel embarrassed or uncomfortable in the presence of a trainee or a student, please inform the receptionist.

Practice Management

Ms Linda Cross
Practice Manager If you have any questions or comments about administration or non-medical aspects of your care please contact Linda



We have 3 secretaries at the practice dealing with administration including hospital referrals. If you have to cancel/re-arrange a hospital appointment please contact the hospital not the practice secretaries. If you wish to speak to or leave a message for the doctors, you may do this via the secretaries


The reception team are trained to help you make appointments, deal with any queries you may have and add to the care patients receive at Riversdale.  They have been asked by the Doctors to ask you some questions before making you an appointment, either telephone or face to face, to ensure you are put with the appropriate clinician for the appropriate amount of time.
