For Kingfisher Patients – who/what/where is Mornington Surgery?
For Mornington Patients – do I have to do anything?
For Kingfisher Patients - do I have to do anything?
No! You’ll stay registered at Kingfisher and you can continue to access the service as normal. You might meet a few new patients and a few new staff members, but other than that, everything will stay the same for you.
When will the merger be happening?
The merger is scheduled to happen on 30th June 2021, so for Mornington patients, you'll be coming to the new Kingfisher site from Thursday 1st July onwards as Mornington Surgery will be vacated on the Wednesday 30th June
What services do you provide at Kingfisher Medical Centre?
You should be able to get the same services and more once the merger has happened. This includes:
face-to-face appointments and telephone appointments with our clinicians
advice and guidance on urgent issues from our experienced paramedic team
specialist clinics e.g. on diabetes with our nursing team
medication reviews from our dedicated in-house pharmacist team
blood tests with our in-house healthcare assitant
.... and much much more!
How do I get to Kingfisher Medical Centre and when are you open?
Kingfisher is just a short walking distance from Mornington Surgery (c. 10 minutes) on Staunton Street, Deptford, SE8 5DA. We have on-street parking and we’re also near to the bus stop for the 47, 188, 199, N1 and N199.
I live outside your catchment area - can I still be a patient at Kingfisher?
Yes! We are able to register patients outside of our catchment area in general.
What about Kingfisher Surrey Docks (Surrey Docks Health Centre, SE16 6AE)
The Kingfisher Surrey Docks branch site in SE16 will still be open as normal after the merger and will be available for existing Kingfisher patients and for new Mornington patients as well!
MORNINGTON SURGERY & KINGFISHER MEDICAL CENTRE MERGER
Mornington Surgery and Kingfisher Medical Centre are going to merge to form a single GP practice from 1st July.
The Mornington Surgery site on New Cross Road will close after the merger and so all services will be provided to Mornington Surgery patients from Kingfisher Medical Centre and its branch site in Surrey Docks.
Some of the Mornington staff will come over to Kingfisher after the merger including Dr Krishna, Dr Mary, and Dharshika Krishna, so you’ll have familiar faces at the new location as well as some new ones!
