Ifield Medical Practice
Best Small Business Apprenticeship Employer of the Year
We are very pleased to announce that we have been recognised for the work that we do in supporting apprenticeships at the recent Kent Surrey and Sussex Apprentice and Support Workers Awards 2018.
Although we were up against the Hospital Trusts with entire teams to support apprentices, the work we do on a smaller scale was acknowledged and a new category
We were one of only two surgeries at the awards ceremony, all the other attendees being the big hospital trusts with whole departments working towards supporting apprentices. However Health Education England were so impressed with the work that we are doing to support and develop our apprentices, they created a special category especially to recognise small employers. The awards have been going for four years, but this is the first time that they have felt the need to recognise small employers!

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.
