King’s Medical Centre is proud to be an accredited training practice for doctors training to become GPs. The practice is accredited by the East Midlands Deanery.

GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors who already have much experience of hospital medicines but who have decided to specialise in General Practice. They work full-time in the practice for a period of 4 or 12 months dependent upon the stage of training they are at.

They are supervised by King's Medical Centre GP Trainers and provide the same standard of care as the GPs. We are pleased to have them with us as valuable additions to our team.

Consultations are sometimes videoed for training purposes. The recording will only take place if you agree to this; there is no obligation for you to do so. You will be notified beforehand if this is the case and will be asked to sign a consent form.

We are aware of some difficulties when accessing our telephone lines. We are working with our provider to try and improve this.

Prescription requests

We would like to remind patients that prescriptions cannot be requested over the phone. We are aware the local pharmacies are also no longer able to take prescription orders over the phone.

To order your prescription, please see the following options:

  • Speak to your pharmacy to see if they have an ordering options available
  • Place the prescription in the black box outside the practice
  • Post your prescription to the practice
  • Use the NHS App or SystmOnline

Staff updates

We would like to say a big welcome to our two new receptionists Kelly and Kim who have joined our existing team. 

We have two new Practice Nurses, Sara-Louise and Sarah, who will be joining our existing Practice Nurse Jo and our three Healthcare Assistants to complete our nursing team. 

A big congratulations to Dr Gouldstone who welcomed her baby girl in December. 

We are sorry to see our Practice Nurse Sophie go. We wish her all the best with her future endeavours. 


You can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more.

If you already use SystmOnline, you can continue to use it and use the app as well.
