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.

  • Telling people

    Caring responsibilities can make it difficult to maintain friendships or develop new ones. Telling your friends you're a carer is important so they understand and can support you.

  • Taking a break

    Caring for someone can be a full-time job, but it's essential that you take time out for yourself too. Read our guide to accessing breaks and respite.

  • Housing and carers

    Do you know your tenancy rights as a carer? Are you aware of all your care at home options? Do you need tips on moving someone around the home?
