Welcome To The Kenmore Medical Centre
This website will give you and your family all the information you require.
Dr Hendry retired from Kenmore Medical Centre at the end of August 2014. I'm sure we all wish him well in the future.
We are pleased to welcome a new part time GP Dr Tom Steele. Many of you will remember Dr Steele as he previously worked here as a Registrar.

Electronic Prescription Service
A new way to get your medicines and appliances.
Kenmore Medical Centre provides primary care services to its registered list of approximately 12,500 patients. The surgery doctors and nurses offer a wide range of clinical skills and the whole surgery team is committed to providing good quality care to our patients.
In order to maintain good quality services the surgery limits registration only to those patients residing within the defined practice area.
Non-UK citizens registering with the surgery are advised that doing so may not necessarily entitle them to free access to other NHS services (eg hospital treatment) and they are advised to clarify their individual situation with the Eastern Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
This website is intended to help you make best use of the surgery facilities and we are grateful to the Kenmore Patients' Group for their significant contribution to the content and layout.
In an emergency dial 999 for an ambulance. Accident and Emergency Departments are located at your nearest hospital:

Management Of Sudden Chest Pain In Adults
It is important that there is no delay in your being assessed and treated for a possible heart attack if you experience sudden chest pain. The quickest way to do this is to dial 999 – telephoning the surgery will only cause delay. Once an ambulance call has been made the crew will notify the Accident and Emergency department that you are on your way.
This will alert the cardiac team to be waiting with equipment and drugs – with a heart attack, the quicker these drugs are given the more effective they will be.
You do not need to be concerned that your pain may turn out not to be a heart attack – there can be false alarms – but getting to A & E without delay offers the best chance of a good outcome if you are having a heart attack.
(This advice has been disseminated by the Macclesfield A&E Consultant to all surgeries in the area.)
For patients in wheelchairs or who are unable to climb the steps at the main entrance, there is a lift access from inside the main entrance which will take you to the ground floor reception area and then to the first floor consultation rooms.
Spaces for parking up to 30 cars are provided within the practice grounds of which 9 are for doctors' use only, 1 for pharmacy use, 2 for disabled users, 1 parent and child; the remainder being available for the use of patients or visitors to the surgery. You are asked not to leave your car anywhere other than these 15 spaces and not to leave your car on site after your surgery visit is finished.
At busy times the surgery car park may be full, so why not make life easier and get fitter by walking or cycling to the surgery. A cycle shed is available for the use of patients and staff.
Patients requiring non-emergency ambulance transport should contact Mersey Ambulance Service on 0845 112 0999. Local "community cars" transport can be booked through reception.
