About the practice

The past, present and future of our practice

We are a practice of approximately 9.200 patients covering Iver, Iver Heath & Richings Park. We practice from 2 sites, Iver Medical Centre in Iver village and Trewarden Avenue Health Centre in Iver Heath. Both buildings were purpose built in the 1990s and have recently been refurbished. We became a GP training practice in 2011. We have embraced the recent changes in the local NHS including playing an important role in our local Primary Care Network.

Our Primary Care Network
We work with a number of local practices to improve the support we give local patients. We explain this further under

The Practice boundary

A map of our area is available under Practice boundary. Please note that we can only register patients who live in our catchment area, so if you do move outside our practice boundary you will need to register with a GP practice who covers the area you have moved into.

Training practice

We are accredited as a Training Practice for GP Specialty Trainees. When you are offered an appointment, this may be with one of our GP trainees. Our GP trainees occasionally video their consultations for learning purposes. They will always ask your permission in the consultation, but if you object to your consultation being recorded, you can also let us know when booking an appointment. This is explained in more detail below.

Iver Medical Centre is an accredited Training Practice. Accreditation is a mark of clinical and administrative excellence.

As a Training Practice, hospital doctors come here as part of their ongoing professional training and development to gain the necessary experience they need to become GPs. All these doctors are fully qualified and are supervised by one of the Practice Partners.

Our present practice partners involved in training and who our present GP trainees are can both be found under doctors under

We have much more detailed information about GP training under Training practice.

As part of their ongoing training and qualification the GP Registrars are required to present some video consultations to the Royal College of General Practitioners. Our GP trainees also occasionally video their consultations for learning purposes. Patients may be asked to allow their consultation to be videoed. This will only be done with the full, unequivocal consent of the patient concerned.

You will be informed at the time of checking-in that the consultation is requested to be videoed and you will be asked to sign a consent form to confirm your agreement at the appointment. You have the right to decline being videoed and this will not affect your consultation.

We will always ask your permission, but if you object to your consultation being recorded, you can also let us know when booking an appointment.

Medical students and nursing students may attend the practice from time to time.

Research in practice

We are a National Institute for Heath Research (NIHR) accredited practice for research. We take part in various studies lead by the NIHR, as well those by the RCGP, medical charities and local and national academic organisations. Our research lead is Dr Neetul Shah. We were awarded Gold level in Research for 2020-2021. Recent studies that our patients have taken part in include those looking at depression, urine infections and shingles.

Further information on any present studies we are involved in can be found under:

Disabled bays

Translation service

A local translation (interpreting) service is available free of charge for patients using GP and NHS hospital services in England. This also includes interpreting for people who are deaf or deaf/blind. A member of our reception team can arrange an interpreter for a consultation in the practice. For any hospital appointment contact the hospital department dealing with your treatment or appointment and they will arrange an interpreter.

Please let us know if you need interpreting help as soon as possible to make sure we can have an interpreter in place for your consultation at the practice (ideally this should be when you make the appointment at the practice).

We do not allow children to act as interpreters during any treatments or appointments at the practice.
