About Us

We have been a training practice since 2008 and enjoy welcoming registrars and making them part of our team for the period of time that they spend with us. We also teach Brighton medical students from all years.

Our partnership is responsible for 2 surgeries, both based in villages within the beautiful countryside of the High Weald and covering the surrounding semi-rural areas.

The Ashdown Forest Health Centre is a 10,000 patient semi-rural dispensing practice with 4 partners and 3 salaried Doctors.

Our practice is situated in the village of Forest Row and we cover the outlying villages of Nutley, Chelwood Gate and Danehill along with the countryside of he Ashdown Forest. Here, as well as general practice, we are also able to provide dedicated minor surgery sessions as well as other enhanced services as mircosuction and pipelle biopsies.

Woodhill Surgery is a much smaller 3000 patient surgery in the village of Mayfield which we took over in 2013. With 2 regular salaried Doctors and the partners each covering one day a week, the registrars usually attend for a half or one day a week.

These two environments give a broad experience of life in semi-rural practice on different scales, both using SystemOne as a clinical computer system.

Heather Heatley

About Us

Holbrook Surgery was started in 1995 by Dr Heatley in a portacabin in a field on Tylden Way. Drs Woods and Sheikh subsequently joined him and the practice expanded rapidly. Dr Williams joined in 1997 and Dr Ziyada in 1998, both working part-time. During this period of rapid growth an extra two portacabins were added and despite many obstacles, progress was made on securing the site for the permanent building on Bartholomew Way. Finally in 1998 the new surgery building was opened.

Dr Liu joined in February 1998 & Dr Heath in May 2001. As the surgery continued to take on more patients, Dr Singh a former GP registrar at Holbrook Surgery was employed as a salaried GP in February 2006. Dr Sheikh retired in April 2006. His patients were taken on by Drs Williams and Ziyada who both became full-time.

Following Dr Heath’s retirement in August 2012, Dr Singh increased to full-time work and Dr Anderson another former registrar joined as a salaried GP. Designed by Procter Associates, the building is one of the first to house notes and administration upstairs to give confidentiality and a peaceful waiting room.

We aim to provide patients with comprehensive primary care, both by accommodating all our community staff and also by providing a full range of clinics and services. We also try to be innovative and are constantly seeking to upgrade our skills and knowledge. Thus the doctors each specialise in a clinical area and the nurses now manage many conditions in their clinics that previously were the sole responsibility of doctors.

Moatfield has been a training practice for many years. 2 training colleagues retired 3 years ago and since then Dr Williams, Dr Pasan and Dr Kane qualified together as trainers in January 2017. We have enjoyed supervising both Foundation doctors and GP trainees over the last 3 years. Moatfield surgery continues to teach 4th year BSMS medical students regularly. We also train and mentor nurses.

Moatfield is a well organised practice and the whole the team is supportive of trainees. Our practice managers and reception manager are involved in making your placement successful. We have regular meetings (both formal and informal) to facilitate communication and good patient care as well as share learning and support each other.

We don’t want anyone to feel isolated or stuck in their room on their own!

We value trainees and we encourage them to be part of our team. Currently we have 4 salaried doctors and 6 partners. We encourage portfolio careers and keeping the work/life balance in check. Social occasions are optional but can be fun! We are in East Grinstead, a short walk to the town centre and opposite the Kings Centre Leisure centre and park.

About Us

Mid Downs is a training practice of 6 GP Partners. We are also actively involved in teaching medical students from BSMS Medical School hosting 5th year and 4th year students at our practice and welcome trainees being involved in teaching, if they so wish. All of our doctors have a specialist interest e.g one partner is an ENT Gpwsi, another does minor ops and dermatoscopy, others do family planning, diabetes etc. We therefore try to refer to each other wherever possible.

The practice consists of two sites, the main site is in the village of Newick, a semi-rural location very near Sheffield Park (a National Trust site) and the Bluebell Railway and about 10 miles east of Haywards Heath. The branch surgery is situated in South Chailey a few miles north of Lewes. The Practice population is around 9,200.

We are a friendly, enthusiastic and relaxed branch that prides itself on providing an innovative primary care.

Past trainees have immediately found jobs of their choice after completion and have fed back that their training here really gave them the skills to thrive independently in the primary world.
