Good news…we’re moving!!!
Ivel Medical Centre will be moving to new, refurbished premises in the Acorn Centre on Chestnut Avenue - opposite the public car park and next to the Ambulance and Fire Stations.
The practice will not be moving until autumn of 2015 - work to refurbish the new premises will begin early in the New Year.
We will keep all patients fully informed as the project progresses – but in the meantime, please speak to a member of staff in the practice if you have any questions or concerns.
Full plans are on display in the Practice.
