As this is a training practice it is not unusual for surgery sessions to be undertaken by qualified doctors undergoing postgraduate training. We are also pleased to have junior doctors from Mid-Cheshire Hospitals Trust as well as medical students from Manchester and Keele University working with us from time to time.

A full range of maternity, contraception (including coil and implant fitting), child health and minor surgery services are available in the Medical Centre. We also have a nurse practitioner who can assist with chronic medical conditions and common acute illnesses. When attending for clinical examination we can arrange for a chaperone to be present if you wish. Please ask the receptionist or the health care professional you are consulting if you wish to have a chaperone present.
