Croydon IAPT is a free and confidential NHS service provided by the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust.
They offer a range of psychological therapies to adults 18 years and over, who are registered with a Croydon GP.
IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) is a national programme that was created in 2005 after it was recognised that a very large percentage of the population suffer with problems like depression and anxiety at some point in their lives. Each county and London borough have their own local IAPT service that provides evidence based treatment for common problems like these.

Social prescribing, sometimes referred to as community referral, is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services.
Social prescribing schemes can involve a variety of activities which are typically provided by voluntary and community sector organisations. Examples include:
Assist hundreds of Croydon residents to claim extra benefits which can help towards regular costs such as fuel bills, healthier food, care, mobility and council tax. We can also give advice on 'one-off' payments to help with things like removal costs.
We invite all patients to join our Patient Participation Group.
Our Patient Participation Group is a partnership between the practice and its patients, we meet regularly with our practice leaders and GPs to discuss matters relevant to you, as well as local and national issues.
You can register by sending your details to email@example.com or please give your contact details to reception
It's Carers Week 10-16th JUNE!
Are you a carer?
Here at Eversley we hold carers meetings. We offer support. In our meetings you will meet other members of the group that may face the same daily challenges. We also provide useful information from our council, and have a list of organisation that can help.
For more information regarding our next carers meeting keep an eye out here.
For more information regarding these services we offer at our surgery please speak to your GP or a member of the reception team.
The surgery offers specialised clinics or nurses expert in the following areas:
Appointments can be made via reception or at your GP’s recommendation.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.

Well woman checks and family planning advice is available as required. Simply make an appointment with the GP of your choice.
Smear tests are strongly recommended at regular intervals for women aged 25-64. You will receive a call letter automatically and can make an appointment at reception.
We have the facilities to perform certain minor surgical procedures. Your GP will make arrangements where indicated.
Our practice nurses run flu clinics starting in autumn each year. Injections are recommended for those over 65 or with certain chronic medical conditions. If appropriate you may also be offered a pneumonia vaccination.
Milestone development checks are carried out either at the surgery or by the Health Visitors. Details can be found in your child’s red book or from the Health Visitors themselves. A full programme of immunisation is encouraged.
We aim to provide the best services possible but there may be times when you feel this has not happened. Please note that we have to respect our duty of confidentiality to patients and a patient’s consent will be necessary if a complaint is not made by them in person. If you feel you have grounds for complaint, please discuss these with the member of staff concerned, when it is hoped any problem can be resolved at once. However, should you not wish to speak to the person concerned, please contact our Practice Manager or Reception Team Leader either directly or in writing. We operate a practice complaints procedure as part of the NHS system for dealing with complaints. A complaints leaflet is available from reception on our procedure.
Patients who have a comment or complaint which cannot be resolved locally with the practice can contact either NHS England or NHS Complaints Advocacy using the details below.
