Who we are and what we are about

it’s no secret that times are tough in general practice at the moment, sometimes it can feel like you are being attacked from all angles with everyone wanting a piece of you. Workload is definitely up!

At Ivy Grove Surgery (IGS) we recognise this pressure. Our ethos is to protect our greatest assets, our staff and partners. We aim to support each other through regular peer meetings. From our simple 30-minute coffee break together in the staff room every working day, to our New Starter GP: induction and mentoring scheme.

Support for the more challenging aspects of our work takes the form of clinical meetings, bereavement meetings, complaint de-brief & support meetings plus the advice and support of the team.

Innovation is key to our ethos, we should not be duplicating or completing work that would be more suitable for another member of our practice team. Our resident IT wizard, the notable Dr Wong, has streamlined our processes with integrated templates, easy QoF reminders and merged referrals forms to name but a few. All of this cuts down the amount of admin our GPs have to do! Please visit our bespoke website ivy.gs, this should give you a feel of what our practice is all about.

Like any other employer we expect our employees and partners to work hard but we pride ourselves on our fair and compassionate approach. Our management team are supportive and caring, they are there when you need them the most. They can guide you through practice processes when first starting, give advice on compliant handling, help you network in our locality or help you apply to the CQC for registration when you make partner!

Our working days at IGS operate rather differently to traditional GP surgeries, please ask us for more information. Our innovative working pattern is able to provide a varied working pattern allowing patient contacts to be kept to an average of 6-9 face to face consultations either followed by a break or a change in activity. There is also protected admin/paperwork time in the working day.

On-call days can get busy but you are not on your own, our duty doctor is supported during the busy morning period by a second GP, who also completes the morning visits.
