New name for GP surgery

THE Lyons Practice in Shoreham town centre will be changing its name on Monday.

Dr Nigel Lyons, who qualified in 1976 and joined the practice in 1981, will be retiring on Sunday.

The practice, based at Shoreham Health Centre in Pond Road, will then become known as Church View Surgery.

Dr Lyons’ patients are being taken over by Dr Victoria Figueira, who has been working in the practice since August 2012.

Dr Robert Riddle started the practice in his house in John Street in the 1930s and for many years, he was the only GP in Shoreham.

In 1969, the practice moved into Shoreham Health Centre when it was first built and is now one of two based there.
