NHS COVID Pass
Your pass will allow you to share you COVID-19 vaccination status in a secure way. By showing this or proof of a negative lateral flow test, this can be used for:
- Travelling abroad
- Showing your employer that you are fully vaccinated and are not required to self-isolate if you’re identified as a contact
- Attending large events and nightclubs in Wales
For any issues with NHS login, contact NHS login help centre.
If your vaccination status record is incorrect, please contact your local health board.
Contact your doctors to get advice for your problem now
Start a consultation online using eConsult. It takes just a few minutes to complete an eConsult and by doing so you will give our doctors all the information they need to decide on the right care for you and your family. If you can use eConsult it means you free up the phone line for those who are not able to use the internet.
Please try to find the specific condition, rather than use the general advice form where possible.
We are a ‘Digital First’ practice. All our online consultations are reviewed by a GP on the day that they are received. We aim to respond the same working day, or the next day if it is exceptionally busy and your problem is not clinically urgent.

Welcome to Taff Riverside Practice
We are a partnership of 3 GPs providing a range of primary health care services to our patients and local community.
We work from Riverside Health Centre alongside another, totally independent GP surgery.
We will provide you, our patients, with a service to support all of your medical, social and psychological needs introducing you to the most appropriate staff whether in practice or using external qualified and experienced team members.
Our Core Values
A morning triage service is available due to the current Coronavirus guidelines via the telephone between 8am and 10am. Our reception team will ask for a brief description of your medical requirements and your contact details – these are treated in a confidential manner – allowing the doctor, if appropriate, to call you back at a later time that same morning (occasionally due to high demand in the afternoon). We request you call the surgery at the earliest opportunity for this service due to ever increasing demand. Our doctors have a limited number of “appointment” slots available each morning, only being able to consider matters of an urgent nature once all have been filled.
In addition, we will offer children under 16 with acute presentations, and all patients clinically triaged as requiring urgent assessment the offer of a same day consultation with either a GP or our Nurse Practitioner as deemed appropriate.
Whilst you may ask to speak with a doctor, our Reception staff may introduce you to another member of our team, more suited to discuss your particular concern. By taking this action our aim is to ensure you are seen, by the right person, first time, every time to ensure the care you require is provided at the earliest opportunity. A GP may not always the only person who can help you.
We kindly request that you treat all our staff with the dignity, courtesy and politeness you would expect.
Your care is important to us and we look forward to assisting you, to the best of our ability, and within any current constraints and guidelines caused by the Coronavirus Pandemic.
If you have any questions about the services or support networks available please do not hesitate to ask.
