Important Information: Practice Merger

From 18th January 2018 patients previously registered with Kensington Partnership and Mughal Medical Centre will now be able to view and book online appointments at Kensington Street Health Centre, Lower Grange Medical Centre and Mughal Medical Centre.

Please check carefully at which site you are booking at an appointment and only book appointments that you are able to attend.

Kensington Partnership is merging with three other GP Practices, Woodroyd Medical Practice, Dr de Haar & Partners and Mughal Medical Centre, to create one new Practice based at four locations. The new practice will have about 19,000 patients compared to approximately 9,000 currently registered at Kensington Partnership. This will give us the benefit of stability and make us stronger as we face the future. This merger will put us in a much stronger position to recruit the best staff, as top quality doctors and nurses will be attracted to a larger practice with more resources and more influence.

For the first 6 to 12 months it is unlikely that patients will notice any changes, as we work behind the scenes to identify the best ways of doing things across the new practice. 

For more details please read our practice newsletter.

Accessible Information

Kensington Partnership is working to ensure that all patients have access to the information they need about their healthcare. Our staff can provide information in a variety of formats in order to meet the needs of patients in accordance with the NHS Accessible Information Standard.

This includes, for example, providing information in a larger text format or as an audio file for patients who are blind or partially sighted; or providing information as a British Sign Language (BSL) video or via a BSL interpreter or through a speech-to-text reporter (STTR) for patients who are Deaf or have hearing loss. 

We want to know if you need information in braille, large print or easy read. Kensington Partnership can provide you with a BSL interpreter but this MUST be arranged in advance (as the interpreter needs to be booked).

Much more information and advice can be found at www.signhealth.org.uk.

We want to know if we can support you to lipread or use a hearing aid or communication tool.
