Ifield Medical Practice
We regretfully wish to inform the community that from 23 November 2016, Ifield Medical Practice will be capping its patient list. This means that with the exception of newborn babies and immediate family members living at the same address as a registered patient within our current boundary, we will be temporarily suspending all new patient registrations. Existing patients who currently live outside of our boundary will not be affected, although if patients move to an address outside of the boundary they will be asked to register with a more local Practice.
This decision has not been taken lightly and has been made in the best interests of our existing patient population. It is essential that we are able to ensure that the Practice can continue to safely provide NHS services to its currently registered patients.
We thank you for your understanding and hope that we will be able to open our list again soon.
Welcome and Goodbye
We are very happy to welcome Dr Anna Alexander who joined the Practice as a Partner on 10 October 2016 and look forward to working with her.
At the same time we are sad to say Goodbye to Dr Donnelly, who has retired from the Practice after more than 20 years. We all wish her well for the future.
Seasonal 'Flu Vaccinations
We still have a limited number of seasonal vaccintations left and are still taking bookings for patients in our at risk groups. Please contact reception.
Unfortunately we unable to continue to offer our Extended Hours service on a Wednesday evening as we are unable to staff these hours. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
How are we doing?
Did you get great care last time you attended the surgery. Please give us your feedback at: www.iwantgreatcare.org/gpsurgeries/ifield-medical-practice
All patients now have a named allocated GP, this does not affect your choice of clinician when you request an appointment. If you wish to know who your allocated GP is, please contact us.
The Ifield Medical practice is a group of six doctors - three female and three male - working as a general partnership known as Ifield Medical practice. The partnership cares for around 10,000 patients.
The practice has been approved for GP and medical student training. Each year one or more fully qualified doctors with experience in hospital medicine may spend time with the practice as part of their preparation to become general practitioners. They share all aspects of patient care and the partners welcome their contribution to the team. Occasionally, medical students, district nurses in training and student community midwives may also spend time with the practice.
If you are unwell out of hours, please Choose Well and choose the most appropriate service.
Online access to your medical record is now available , as well as the ability to book/cancel appointments and order repeat medication online. These services are available for all patients over the age of 16. If you wish to take advantage of this service, please read the information leaflet and complete the registration form below and bring it into reception with some photo id. We will require photo id for all online access going forward.

Patient Access Registration Form
In view of patient safety it is sometimes necessary to move medication from the repeat list to acute medication. This does not mean that the medication has been stopped, but it cannot be ordered on-line.
