About Us

Rydings Hall Surgery is a 4 partner practice which is not a limited partnership.


Rydings Hall was built in 1925, by local builder John Jagger, as a result of the generosity of Richard Woodhouse of Woodhouse and Riding, and presented to the Church Institute.

The upstairs of the building was used by the Church Institute and the main hall downstairs was used for public meetings and dances.  These were held throughout the war years, but no alcoholic drinks were allowed.

When the building came up for sale, it was purchased by the Brighouse and Rastrick Band, who used it for practising purposes until May 1991.

After conversion, this was then opened as Rydings Hall Surgery.


The practice covers Brighouse and its surrounding area including Hipperholme, Lightcliffe to the North and up to Bradley Bar/Fixby area to the South.

GP Training & Development

Rydings Hall Surgery is a training practice with a strong emphasis on providing high quality patient care through continued training and development of the future workforce. We participate in the training of medical students and the advanced training of qualified doctors who wish to specialise as General Practitioners.

A GP Registrar is a fully qualified doctor who is gaining advanced experience in General Practice and you may be offered an appointment with one. We also teach Medical Students, Nurses and Physician Associates. The patient services advisor will inform you of the occasions when a surgery is being held jointly. This can be a surgery in which GP Trainer and GP Registrar are present or a GP and a medical student. 

For training purposes we sometimes conduct video recording of consultations with an informed written consent. This will be done before and after the recording.

No physical examinations are recorded

The Practice team would like to thank our patients for supporting us with the continuing education of future GPs and the Primary care workforce.
