Hi budah - the ivy won't be killing the hedge as such, but it will take over and block light etc so if you want rid of it, the best way is to find it's source and cut back to the ground. When new growth appears , treat it with weedkiller. You may need to bruise/crush the leaves to allow it to take it up as they're very waxy. Many people find SBK Brushwood killer more effective for the job as it's better for woodier material. If you're worried about getting it onto the hedge, you can isolate the treated growth inside a polythene bag. It might be tricky so take your time.
Once you've got rid of the ivy, you can give your hedge a feed and a mulch to give it a boost.
