OUR PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY

At Ivy Grove Surgery, we have always considered care to be a two-way process. We will always aim to provide you and your family with high-quality and friendly health care.

In return, we expect all our patients to accept some responsibility for their own health and we encourage them to do all they can to look after themselves and to stay healthy.

Your health is not a commodity that can be treated as a convenience provided at the expense of others, it is actually an innate and priceless privilege that is available to everybody. Your health is nurtured throughout life, from childhood through to old age, by looking after yourself, and when you need it, with appropriate and timely help from the right professionals.

We do not see our job as being here just to fix you. But we will do all we can to help you to fix yourself. Therefore, and fully in line with current NHS philosophy, we actively promote the principles of self-care, helping yourself, and signposting yourself to the right professional.

We welcome new patients who are prepared to work with us on building a long and healthy relationship together.
