First time to Kings Medical Practice?

Our training venue is easily accessible by car with cheap parking immediately opposite. If you are attending for a training session longer than 1 hour, here's a hint; don't use the ASDA car park. For the ecological amongst you, Normanton railway station is only a 7-minute walk away and there are regular buses that run to and from Wakefield and the surrounding district. For the more adventurous, there is a secure covered area for cyclists.
