Welcome to Northgate Village Surgery
Northgate Village Surgery is a friendly well established GP training practice, established in 1991 by Dr Ron McClure and Dr Liz McClure who built the original Northgate Village Surgery premises on Northgate Avenue.
The doctors and staff here at Northgate Village in Chester are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
As our surgery is a teaching practice we occasionally have groups of medical students working with us to further their education. During their time with us, they are required to sit in during appointments from time to time. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival.
We also have junior doctors and additional doctors called registrars. Registrars usually work with us for a year, helping them become fully qualified GP's.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side and the drop down menu above. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

You can complete the questionnaire Here or you can simply fill in the questionnaire next time you visit the surgery.
