Our Mission Statement
“Kingswood Health Centre strives to be a quality primary care provider that puts patient care at the heart of its activity, treating patients with dignity and respect at all times.”
Telephone System Change
Kingswood Health centre will be upgrading its telephone system on Tuesday 15th December. We are expecting a seamless upgrade, however should any issues be experienced; our telephone system may be unavailable from 1-2pm. Please can we ask that you ring back as soon as the lines are open at 2pm, or ring 111 for any non-emergency medical issues, and 999 for any emergency matters.
Same Day Telephone assessments for muscle, joint or spinal problems
Kingswood Health Centre is taking part in a pilot service which offers the opportunity to receive specialist advice from a physiotherapist about your sore muscles, joints or spine (MSK problems) rather than a GP first from early November 2015.
You are eligible for this service if you:
- Have developed a problem with your muscles, joints or spine in the last six weeks. This may be a flare up of a pre-existing condition, or a completely new problem;
- Have not already seen anyone about this episode;
- Are aged over 18;
- Are able to travel to an appointment.
If you contact the practice asking for an appointment with your GP, you may instead be offered a telephone call with a physiotherapist. The physiotherapist will be specialised in dealing with these kind of problems. They will assess what is wrong and give you specialist advice and exercises to help. The physiotherapist may then ask you to have a follow up face to face appointment to offer you further assessment. It will usually be arranged within five days of having the initial telephone call. You may need to travel to another GP practice for this appointment.
The Shingles vaccine will be offered routinely as part of the NHS vaccination programme to all people aged 70, 78 or 79 on 1st September 2015. If you are eligible for a vaccination you will receive a letter from the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists to book your appointment.
Even though you may have had Chickenpox you may still be at risk of developing shingles. Unfortunatley in older people this can be more severe which is why the Department of Health has introduced a shingles vaccination.

Friends and Family
From 1st November, you will be given the opportunity to tell us whether you would recommend our surgery to friends and family, if they needed similar treatment and care. You will be asked to choose one of six options, ranging from ‘Extremely Likely’ to ‘Extremely Unlikely’. You will also be invited to tell us if you feel you would be likely to use a self-help area on our website, instead of seeing your GP for an appointment. Please note that all responses will be anonymised. You will find a box to put your returns in and pens in the waiting room. Forms can be obtained from our leaflet stands, Reception or your GP. We hope you will take this opportunity to provide this valuable feedback and thank you in advance. Please see the link to the right of this page for our current results.
