The Croydon GP Collaborative (CGPC) is a forward thinking and passionate independent healthcare provider. CGPC was created by 55 Croydon GP Practices and covers approximately 392,000 patients.
The Croydon GP Collaborative is an organisation that was formed in response to the growing need for change and collaborative working within General Practice. CGPC aims to become a positive force within the local health and social care system that can transform the way services are provided to the local population.
We run a variety of services which are commissioned by Croydon Health Servies, Croydon CCG and Public Health. They include, Dermatology, Anticoagulation, Domicilary Car Service, OOH and Enhanced Access Service hubs.
With all care beginning in Primary Care, CGPC will support and encourage collaboration to ensure GP services remain at the heart of local communities to deliver high quality, patient-focused healthcare.

Gill has been working in the NHS for 16 years, previously having had clinical experience as well as having managed a Croydon GP Practice. She has also worked as a Primary Care Consultant, advising practices on how to work efficiently and cost effectively. She also suported them to achieve CQC compliance, and has undertaken organisational changes and Practice mergers.
Prior to working in the NHS, Gill worked in senior leadership roles in IT in the City, in both wholesale banking and the energy trading industry.
Raised in Croydon, Gaj Sivadhas set off for medical school vowing never to return. But after being accepted onto the Croydon VTS he was astounded by the quality of the teaching, the progressive views of the leadership, but most importantly the camaraderie and pride Croydon GPs felt about General Practice.
As Chair he is passionate about Collaborative working. He knows Croydon’s strengths lie in the skills of its GPs, practice managers and GP staff. Collectively we are a force to be reckoned with, but more importantly we know our patients and their needs.
He is a Partner at Stovell house surgery, a CD, an LMC committee member and a trainer. In his spare time he likes to pretend that he is an athlete, and injury permitting, attempt various triathlons and races with varying degrees of success.
