Opinion and Comment

At Ivy Grove Surgery, we are always striving to provide a high quality and friendly family service. We feel, however, that we have a duty to inform our patients about what is happening in the wider political context of General Practice, as unfortunately, such external constraints do have a significant bearing on what we are able to reasonably achieve within practice.

Please feel free to read/watch the following links so that you know what is going on not only at this practice but also at thousands of practices all over the country.

Needless to say, all views expressed are the opinion of Ivy Grove Surgery, and are not endorsed by any NHS or government organisation, however all information presented within can be fully corroborated by those inclined to do their own research. In doing so, readers are therefore very welcome to come to their own conclusions about what is currently happening in the NHS and in particular, General Practice.

Watch our videos


We have made some information videos that have been shared widely on social media and that have also been personalised for other GP surgeries all round the country.

Read our literature


We have done our bit to publicise the plight of General Practice by writing to government and also sharing information leaflets with our patients and the wider population.

Read our literature


If you remain concerned about the future of the NHS, and especially General Practice, widely considered to be the cornerstone of the NHS, you can write to your local MP or to the Health Secretary. As GPs, we have already been repeatedly advised by our leaders to write and make our feelings known, in last ditch attempts to get the message through to policitians and the public. As patients, but also as voters, you may wish to do the same. You can find details of your local MP at They Work For You (link opens in a new window).

If you wish to provide feedback on our documents, please use our contact form.

Rest assured, all the dedicated and professional doctors and staff here at Ivy Grove Surgery will endeavour to continue to provide high quality and friendly family health care to all our patients within the constraints as outlined above.

Looking for information on GP earnings?

For some reason, all GPs are required to publish this information. Ivy Grove Surgery fulfils this contractual obligation by making such information available on our website, but you're going to have to look for it.
