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 information easily and quickly. You can order repeat prescriptions online, book an appointment, 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.
Extended Hours and Out of Hours Services
Extended Hours Service
Western Cheshire have set up an evening and weekend pre-bookable GP surgery called Extended Hours at The Countess of Chester Health park 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 9.30pm on weekdays, Saturdays 9am - 2pm and Sundays and bank holidays 10am - 3 pm.
This service should be useful for patients who work unsociable hours or find it difficult to attend the surgery during normal surgery hours. Leaflets about the service are available in the surgery.
Telephone 01244 385422 to make an appointment.
You should use this service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life threatening situation.
Call 111 if:
- You need medical help fast but its not a 999 emergency.
- You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
- You don't know who to call or you don't have a GP to call.
- You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
For genuine emergencies dial 999.
