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.

Out of Area Registration

The Practice is free to register patients living outside the Practice area; however the Practice is not obligated to provide the patient with home visits or out of hours care.

You will be able to make routine and urgent in hours appointments. However if you require a home visit, out of area care, or urgent care (and it is inappropriate for you to travel to us) then you will be asked to call NHS 111 who will direct you to a service local to you.

All patients who want to register who live out of area will be assessed as to whether this is clinically appropriate. In the case of some medical conditions it may be beneficial for your needs to register with a more local surgery which can provide you with home visits and out of hours care.
