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.

Training and Teaching

The Practice is involved with the training of FY2 Doctors (Foundation Year 2) who are attached to the Practice for four months. The Practice is also involved in the further training of Doctors (already fully qualified and with several years of hospital experience) who intend to make a career in General Practice. These Doctors, known as Registrars, are attached to the Practice for six months at a time. Please accept them as one of us. The Receptionist will tell you if the Doctor you are seeing is a FY2 or Registrar.

Occasionally a video recording of a consultation is made for training the Registrar. In the event of this taking place your consent will be asked for and if you do not wish to take part in this, the recorder will be switched off.
