Ifield Medical Practice
New Computer System - 18 November 2014
We are upgrading our clinical computer system which will help us to give a better service to all our patients. The system will go live on 18 November, however we will be booking appointments in the new system from 4 November. Please bear with all staff during this period of transition as it will take time for them to adjust to the new computers.
From 4-19 November the booking of appointments on-line will not be available - we apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. On-line prescriptions will be suspended on 18 November and we will get it up and running as soon as possible.

NHS England are introducing a program to extract patient medical records from our clinical system on a monthly basis. They are doing this under powers brought in in the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The aim is to provide timely, accurate information to clinicians and commissioners about the treatments and care provided by the NHS. For more details and an opt-out form click here
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.
