- About Us
From 1 April 2015, practices are required under the GMS contract, to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. All patients registered before 1 April 2015 will be allocated a GP before the end of June 2015. All new patients registering after 1 April 2015 will be informed about their named GP at registration. Please ask your doctor , or the reception staff, who your named, accountable GP is. Should you express a wish for this to be changed to another GP we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.
Welcome to Ivy Court Surgery
We are a rural practice in the heart of Kent serving a community of 14,500 patients.

We pride ourselves on delivery of high quality care to our patients at all times.

Please find our opening hours to the right of the screen, or scroll down if you are on a mobile device. Out of hours and when we are close at weekends (see below), please ring 111 for medical advice.
We run a Weekend Urgent Care Centre, from 9am-12pm on Saturdays and Sundays. This offers the reassurance of seeing a local GP should an urgent healthcare need arise over the weekend.
It operates as a walk-in service for patients registered to Ivy Court, Hamstreet, Woodchurch or Charing surgeries only who would otherwise have called 111 or attended A&E, but will be located at Ivy Court Surgery on Saturday between 9am and 12pm and at Hamstreet Surgery on a Sunday morning 9am-12pm.
We would like to remind our patients that we will be unable to deal with routine queries.
