Welcome to The King Street & University Medical practice

Established in 1927, the King Street Medical practice is the largest practice in Lancaster with nearly 20,000 patients. We practice from two sites, one in the centre of the city and one on the campus of Lancaster University. We are an established training practice.

Our practice covers Lancaster, Torrisholme, Slyne, Hest Bank, Halton, Caton, Galgate and part of Quernmore as well as the entire University campus. Patients are welcome to attend either of our sites.

Have a look around our website and please do send us some feedback. We can use your thoughts to improve our online services & further develop the website to make it more useful for our patients.

One of our GP Partners, Dr James Orr is moving to Australia with his family, his last working day will be the 02.02.2016. We wish him all the best in the future and thank him for all his hard work in his 13 years with the Practice.


All URGENT requests for appointments each day will now be initially assessed over the telephone by one of our ACUTE TEAM Nurse Practitioners.

Nurse Practitioners are all trained specialist nurses who have undertaken additional post graduate training in order to provide advanced nursing care and prescribe medication.

Accountable / Named GP for All Patients


The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP.


If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP please ask the Patient Services Team when you are next in the surgery. 


For convenience if you have a medical card, your accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with.  Patients registering over the last 2-3 years will not have received a medical card as these are no longer routinely sent when registering with a new GP.


Please note there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.


Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.


Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
