Dr Nick King
Nick King studied medicine at Charing Cross, Addenbrookes and Southampton Hospital where he gained a wide range of medical and surgical experience before moving to Guernsey in 1982 as a partner and Family Practitioner with what is now the Healthcare Group. He is Guernsey’s Genito-Urinary Medicine Physician and has a specialist interest in sexual health, HIV and AIDS.
He previously worked in neurosurgery and neurotrauma, orthopaedics and trauma and briefly as a locum at the burns unit in Roehampton. This gave him an insight into the devastating effects that trauma and disfigurement can have on the human condition and the remarkable courage and energy that some people find to cope and overcome this. Latterly the effects AIDS and especially the disfiguring effects of cutaneous Kaposi Sarcoma, have been very contemporary illustrations of how isolating such disfigurement can be.
He is vice-chairman and a founding Governor and Trustee of Les Bourgs Hospice, and previous President of the Guernsey and Alderney branch of the BMA. He has been a Forensic Medical Examiner for the States of Guernsey Police since 1982.
He first met James Partridge in 1982 and is a longstanding supporter of the benefits of such an organisation as Changing Faces. He is pleased to be involved with the ongoing development of Changing Faces Channel Islands and the help and support that can now be provided to those who need this in the Islands.
His recreational interests include music, art and design, and sailing with his family, and skiing, when his work colleagues allow!
