Merger with The Ivy Medical Group

For many years the Apple Tree Medical Practice and the Ivy Medical Group have had a supportive and positive relationship. In recent years the ever growing pressures on general practice in the UK have meant that we have been exploring a closer working relationship to overcome these challenges. Our two practices are well aligned geographically and also in terms of ethos and approach to patient care.

We are pleased to announce in 2018 the Ivy Medical Group and Apple Tree Medical Practice plan to merge. We believe that together we can ensure the continuity of high quality patient care in Burton Joyce and the surrounding villages.

Dr Shetty will continue to work as a GP in the newly formed practice, although he will step down from his role as a GP Partner. Dr James will step down from her role as a GP Partner and long term general clinical work at the practice in order to more flexibly manage family commitments.

Dr Shetty and James have led the Apple Tree Medical Practice for the past 20 years and it has been a privilege to have been involved in the care of our patient community.

We appreciate you may have questions about our plans. Below you can find more information and answers to questions you may have.
