DNA Rate

In September 129 appointments were wasted by patients failing to attend.

Each missed appointment costs the NHS £24.50, so this amounts to £3,000+ gone to waste in just one month, by just one GP practice!

If you are unable to keep your appointment please can you notify the surgery as soon as possible. If we hold your correct mobile number, you can even cancel your appointment via text message.


Staff Changes

Dr Davies has now retired. If you were registered with Dr Davies you will now be registered with Dr Banks or Dr Minshall. You can still see any GP of your choice.

We have one registrar; Dr Christinson Korulla who started with us in August 2017.


We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. 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.

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. 

For more information on the type of students we have please Click Here
Read our Meeting Medical Students leaflet for more information
