Welcome to the Heath Lane Medical Centre Website
Through this website we hope to improve our services to all our patients and enable them to find out the information required at the click of a mouse. You can order repeat prescriptions online, register as a new patient, cancel existing appointments, change your name and address and much more.
Heath Lane Medical Centre was opened in 1995 and there is extensive car parking with easy access for the disabled. On the ground floor there are five consulting rooms, three practice nurse rooms, a treatment room and a minor surgery room as well as rooms for the Counsellor and Phlebotomist. Baby changing facilities and a disabled person’s toilet are sited off the large waiting area. For our patient's convenience we have an independently run pharmacy on site.
New Improved Access
The surgery is open from 8am - 6.30pm Monday to Friday. You can book a routine doctor appointment up to 2 weeks ahead and a nurse appointment up to 3 months ahead.
Also Western Cheshire have set up an evening and weekend pre-bookable GP surgery called Extended Hours at The Countess of Chester Healthpark in the 1829 building (signposted from the entrance of the Hospital). You can book a routine appointment with a doctor or nurse up to 2 weeks in advance. The clinics run between 6.30pm and 8pm on weekdays and 10am - 12pm on a Saturday. This service should be useful for patients who work and find it difficult to attend the surgery during the day. Leaflets about the service are available in the surgery. Telephone 01244 385422 to make an appointment.
New Online Appointment Booking Service
You are now able to book routine GP appointments online. There will be at least two routine appointments per GP per day which are eligible for online booking. In order to book these appointments you must register. To do this please phone Patient Services on 01244 563105. Please note - for urgent appointments you must ring the surgery as they wont be available to book online.
Patients with minor injuries such as cuts, sprains, strains, bites, stings, minor accidents etc should attend the Accident and Emergency Urgent Care Centre at the Countess of Chester hospital and not their GP surgery. If you are unsure please contact NHS111 who will advise you appropriately, to do this simply dial '111' on your keypad.
Transfering Your Electronic Health Record
GP2GP is the technology that transfers your electronic health record directly and securely from your previous GP when you register at this practice. When patients move practices, paper medical records can take weeks to arrive but GP2GP transfers are faster, more reliable and more secure than the existing paper-based method of transferring patient records.
