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.

Dr Brydie is accredited by HEKSS (Health Education Kent Surrey Sussex) to become GP a Trainer in addition to being a Programme Director for General Practice in Mid Sussex
A GP Registrar is a fully qualified, experienced doctor who is completing a further 3 years specialist training in order to become a GP.

  • The GP Registrars will work as part of the practice team and we may have up to 2 GP Registrars at one time.
  • GP Registrars have daily surgeries (often with longer appointment times), undertake home visits and help with on-call doctor duties. Their placements with us vary in length, depending on their stage of training, from 4 months to over 12
    months.
  • Patients may, on occasion, be asked whether they mind having their consultation videoed "video consultation" for assessment purposes and/or to complete patient satisfaction questionnaires.
  • These videos and assessments will always remain confidential and are strictly used only for the GP Registrar to be assessed by their GP Trainer and the HEKSS (Health Education Kent Surrey Sussex).
  • Your help with their training is always greatly appreciated but should you wish not to take part – please advise a member of our Reception Team.


Thank you for your help and support in anticipation! The GPs of the future are very grateful to you.

If you have any questions about doctors in training please do ask us.
