Important Announcement

Following our announcement in 2017 regarding Riverside Surgery moving premises to Courtyard Surgery, this is no longer taking place and Riverside will be remaining at their current premises on Worthing Road.

As such, Courtyard Surgery will no longer be joining with Riverside Surgery. Although this is a change in the original plans, we have, as part of future proofing, 7 new rooms that will be for our patients. 

We are continuing all of the services that we currently offer and will be employing more doctors and other health care professionals to make the most of the additional capacity and strengthen our clinical team.

With more rooms and staff available, we anticipate improving our services with the capacity and ability to look after our patients.

We would like to thank you for your patience.
