Welcome To Kingsfold Medical Centre

Kingsfold Medical Centre

Kingsfold Medical Centre is situated in Penwortham, Preston, Lancashire which forms part of the Chorley & South Ribble Clinical Commissioning Group.

The Practice is currently run by Dr Gokul. Our practice manager is Sangeeta Chikhalikar.  We have one Advanced Nurse Practitioner, one Practice Nurse, one Health Care Assistant and eight reception/administrative staff in addition to access to a full primary health care team.

The premises were purpose-built in 1985, and since then have benefited from a further two extensions to the property. The additional facilities provide excellent amenities for our Physiotherapy, Counselling, Antenatal and Diabetic clinics, as well as a theatre for a variety of surgical procedures. The building is well appointed, with adequate parking facilities for both patients and staff, and provides easy access for disabled patients. The practice is fully computerised and has Internet and NHS Net facilities.

A message from Dr Chikhalikar

To All My Wonderful Colleagues, Patients, Wellwishers

 As many of you know, I am retired from our Kingsfold Medical Centre on 31.07.2017.

It has been with a tinge of sadness and a rainbow of memories to leave.

My temple has been our Kingsfold Medical Centre and my worship has been to look after my patients.

 I would like to take an opportunity to say ’ BIG THANK YOU’ from the bottom of my heart for your kind wishes, beautiful cards, valuable presents and BIG HUGS. I have not won any award in my life but these are my precious awards. It was a very emotional, unforgettable movement for me.  I wish to express my gratitude to each and every one of you for helping to create such a satisfying and pleasant work environment over the last 37years.We have shared a wonderful work relationship as well as friendship.  I leave with many memories to cherish for the rest of my life.

As I look forward to a new life after my retirement, I will certainly miss the enjoyable time I have spent working at KINGSFOLD MEDICAL CENTRE.

So, thanks everybody!

It’s has been quite a ride. I hope to see everybody outside of the medical centre in the next few years.

GOD bless you all!

Take care of yourself and be happy.

Best wishes,

Yours sincerely,

Gautam Chikhalikar
