Welcome to Kensington Group Practice GP Website
The GP Out Of Hours Service provides care for people in Belfast when their normal GP surgery is closed. It is not intended to replace normal GP services, but deals with urgent problems that cannot wait until your own GP is available. You should therefore only use this service if you are suddenly ill and you cannot wait until your GP’s surgery is open.

Important note about Coronovirus vaccination programme
Covid vaccines remain available at a wide range of locations, and if you are due a Booster vaccine, or indeed a 1st or 2nd vaccine, we would continue to encourage you to come forward for one. Those who are over the age of 75, and due their "Spring Booster" can attend any of these locations, if at least three months have passed since their last Covid vaccine, if they have not already done so. Currently appointments for Covid vaccines are not available at the surgery.
