Welcome to Kinson Road Medical Centre
Kinson Road Medical Centre is run by Dr Andrew Brewer, supported by three associate GPs (Dr Emma Sands, Dr Philip Doust and Dr Emma McFarland) and has approximately 8,400 patients. Our main surgery is at 440 Kinson Road and our branch surgery is in West Howe. We pride ourselves on being a very friendly practice and aim to provide a high standard of medical care to all our patients as well as a range of services to meet their needs.
When you join the practice, you will be registered with a named GP within the practice but you will be able to see any of the doctors, subject to their availability. If you wish to know which doctor you are registered with please just contact reception, this is also usually shown on any letters we send to you. You may attend either surgery. When making an appointment, just let the receptionist know who you would prefer to see and at which surgery. The receptionists will do their best to accommodate your preferences but, if your preferred doctor is away or his/her surgery is full, you will be offered an appointment with one of the other doctors or the triage nurse. We offer a range of appointments including same-day (this may take the form of a telephone consultation with either a GP or triage nurse and save you having to come to surgery) and advance booking.
See the appointments page for full details of our opening and consulting times.

Thank you to all our patients who took the time to give us feedback on our practice during 2014. The results have been very positive (for the most part!) and have included comments such as
'I don't think you services need improving at all.The receptionists are very polite and helpful as are the doctors. You don't have to wait week to see a doctor like most surgeries.You can always get an appointment the same day. The surgery puts the patient's needs first.'
'Everything is good; keep up the good work.'
'I don't think you need to improve.I haven't had any problems.'
The comments have helped us to see where we can make improvements.To see this year's improvement plan (together with details of the patient group) just click on 'survey report' on the right-hand side of the screen.
Why not take part in our Friends and Family survey? Just tick on the box below. The feedback from 412 patients in July showed that 289 were extremely likely to recommend our practice to friends and family, 65 were likely to, 16 neither likely nor unlikely, 26 unlikely and sadly 14 were extremely unlikely.
We now have the facility for patients to make an appointment (routine and non-urgent), request their repeat medication and view their medical records online. For information read the leaflet below. Should you wish to apply for online access you need to complete the form and return it to the practice. You will then need to collect your registration details and provide some photo ID.
