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.

Repeat Prescriptions

Please be aware that from January 1st 2017 your pharmacist will NOT be able to order your prescription for you - you will have to request it yourself. This has been changed by the Bradford City Clinical Commissioning Group and affects all GP practices in Bradford. For more information please read this information leaflet provided by the CCG.

Repeat prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:

  • on-line, if you are registered with SystmOne: please click here
  • by completing the repeat slip attached to your paper prescription
  • in writing, either by filling in a repeat prescription slip at reception or sending us the request by post

Please note that it takes two working days for prescriptions to be processed. When you are ready to collect your prescription, please come to Reception for it after 5.00 pm.

Medication Reviews

Please note that from time to time a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse has a duty to review your regular medications to make sure that they are still right for you. (The time between reviews varies widely according to the type of medication and the patient’s condition.) Sometimes the doctor or nurse will need to see you in order to carry out this review. In those cases you will be asked to make an appointment in the normal way.

 

Electronic Prescription Service

More and more pharmacies are now using the Electronic Prescription Service.

If you choose to use this service, it will not be necessary to collect a paper prescription from the surgery and physically take it to the pharmacy. Instead, the surgery will send it electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.

In order to use the service, you simply ask your chosen pharmacist to “nominate” themselves  as your choice. Alternatively, you can come to the surgery and tell us which pharmacist you wish to nominate.

You may find this service useful if you regularly get prescriptions which don’t change very much; and if you always use the same pharmacist or have your medicines delivered.

You probably won’t want to use the service if you don’t often get prescriptions, or if you prefer to collect your medicines from different pharmacies.

For more information, please visit click here to visit the EPS web-site.

One word of warning: we are hearing of rare cases where pharmacies are “nominating” themselves as a patient’s preferred pharmacy for the Electronic Prescription Service, without the patient even being aware that this has happened. If this happens to you, simply contact your preferred pharmacy and nominate them for this service, or tell us if you wish to continue receiving paper prescriptions. You can do this even if you don’t have a prescription pending.
