Welcome to Northgate Medical Centre

We would like to offer a warm welcome to the Northgate Medical Centre surgery website. The doctors and nurses at the practice in Chester take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.

We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, travel vaccinations, minor surgery and childhood vaccinations.


Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone.  You can order your repeat medication via:-

  • Calling into the surgery and either dropping off the printed repeat medication slip attached to your prescription or by completing a repeat medication form at reception.
  • Using the on-line Patient Access System.
  • Telephoning your normal pharmacy to order on your behalf.

Please remember that it takes us 48 business hours to process your prescription.  Prescriptions handed in on a Friday will not be ready for collection until the following Tuesday.
