Leaving the practice area

For the purposes of the government's Choice of GP practice agenda, we confirm that Ivy Grove Surgery does not have an Outer Boundary area within which we would be willing to retain on our list any patients who move from our existing practice area.

Therefore, patients will be requested to register with other local doctors should they move outside the existing practice area. This is necessary to enable us to concentrate our time and resources on providing a quality service for patients who live within our practice area.
