Get help sooner

Why wait to see your doctor? You may not need to…

The Ridings Medical Group has introduced a new way of working that will make it easier for you to get help sooner.

The next time you contact us to book a doctor’s appointment our trained receptionists will ask you some basic questions about your condition. With this information, they can provide you with options for seeing a healthcare professional or service that is more appropriate for your condition. This means you may not have to wait to see your doctor first.

It’s your choice… you can Get Help Sooner.
