Ivy Grove Surgery was established in 1927 by Dr G W R Thomson as a branch of his father’s surgery in Codnor.  The two worked in partnership until 1945 when the elder Dr Thomson retired. At that time, the two branches split up and the Ripley practice developed its own identity.

The aim of Ivy Grove Surgery is to provide you and your family with high quality and friendly health care. We hope the following information will be helpful when using the services we offer.

The Partners and staff of this long-established practice are committed to providing you and your family with high quality and friendly health care.

You have the flexibility of consulting with either your registered doctor or one of the other partners. We offer a choice of mixed age, male or female doctors and therefore hope that we will be able to match your needs for a specific consulting style.

However, we recommend you see the same doctor for any ongoing problem to ensure continuity of care.
