DR MARK CHOPIN - RETIRING
It is with great sadness that we announce from the end of June 2019 Dr Mark Chopin will be retiring as Partner and GP from Courtyard Surgery.
We would like to thank him for the past 25 years he has practiced at Courtyard looking after Horsham patients, and he will be greatly missed by us all.
We wish Dr Chopin all the best for the future and to have a long and enjoyable retirement.
New Registrars at Courtyard Surgery
We are pleased to welcome Dr Alice Tyler (ST3) and Dr Jenny Almeida(ST2) to the practice. Dr Tyler will be here for 8 months until August 2019 as she completes her GP training and will work under the supervision of Dr Brydie. Dr Almeida joins the practice for 4 months from April 2019 as part of her GP training, working under the supervision of Dr Greenwood. Both will have the support of the full clinical and administrative team whilst at the surgery.
Courtyard Surgery has been approved as a Training practice for GP registrars from the Mid Sussex GP Training Scheme.
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.
