About The Portland Road Practice

The practice has been in the Holland Park area for over 40 years initially established by Dr Martin Johnson(dec). In 1995 it moved form Holland Park Avenue to state of the art premises in Portland Road and became known as the Portland Road Practice under the partnership of Dr Krystyna Soboniewska and Dr Diane Watson. Following Dr Soboniewska’s retirement in 2001, Dr Liam Topham joined the practice. The partnership further expanded in 2007 with Mrs Yvonne Fraser joining as the managing partner.

We now serve over 8700 patients in the Notting Hill , Kensington and Shepherds Bush areas; the practice clientele includes a cross-section of socio-economic and ethnic groups reflecting the vibrant cosmopolitan mix of the area.

During the past five years and in comparison with many other health providers the practice has experienced a period of considerable change ahttps://www.portlandroadsurgery.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/practice-leaflet-2018-updated.pdfnd rapid growth. Currently, the clinical team includes four doctors, two nurses and one health care assistant.

Our practice has a PMS (Personal Medical Services) contract with Kensington & Chelsea Primary Care Trust and this allows us to focus on the delivery of good clinical care rather than bureaucratic procedures and on improved professional development for our staff. As a PMS practice we aim to provide a multi-disciplinary team that can deliver a high level of medical service in a number of key areas including Cardiovascular disease, Stroke, Hypertension, Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, Asthma, COPD, Mental health, Cancer and Epilepsy.

We have recently become part of a Primary Care Network where by we work in collaboration with 4 other practise to meet the local needs of our patients
