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.

Flu Clinics

We will be holding clinics specifically for patients to receive the seasonal flu vaccine.

The flu vaccine is available to groups of patients that are thought to be at risk of complications if they contract the virus.

It is recommended that you have the vaccine if you are:

  • 65 years of age or older (born before 1st April 1953)
  • a child aged 2 or 3 (born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2015)
  • pregnant
  • a carer
  • someone who suffers from one of the following conditions;
    • chronic respiratory diseases (such as asthma or COPD)
    • chronic heart disease (such as heart failure)
    • chronic kidney disease
    • chronic liver disease (such as hepatitis)
    • chronic neurological problems (such as Parkinson's disease or MS)
    • diabetes
    • a weakened immune system
    • serious obesity (BMI above 40)

If you do not meet any of these criteria then you may not be eligible for a free vaccination although your GP may recommend that you have a flu vaccine because of a condition that is not on this list. Please contact the surgery if you have any queries.

The flu clinics will be held over two weeks, one in September and one in October. If you cannot attend any of these clinics you can still receive the vaccine by contacting the surgery and arranging an appointment in a routine clinic.
