Dr Karl Anderson

MA Cambridge BM Southampton 2011 MRCGP PGCCE

Born in Winchester, Hampshire, I initially pursued studies in science and graduated with a degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge.  During this degree it began to dawn on me that I wanted to be a GP and therefore, upon completion, I returned to Hampshire to study Medicine at Southampton.  I worked as a junior doctor in hospitals in South London and Kent before completing my GP training in Dorset.  After qualifying as a GP I worked in a practice in Bournemouth but in 2017 my wife, an Orthopaedic Doctor, and I relocated to Derbyshire for her work.  Not knowing the area that well, I initially worked as a locum GP (including here at Appletree) before joining Appletree as a permanent GP in September 2018.  We are now settled in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside which certainly rivals that of Dorset or Hampshire, and anyway, I get sunburnt on the beach.
