Garden Lane Medical
Register with ease
Garden Lane Medical Centre 👨⚕️ 🏥 During your time at University, you will be living in Chester for the majority of the year. Therefore, it is important that you register with a local GP in Chester as soon as possible and not wait until you are poorly. It is particularly important if you have a long term condition such as asthma or diabetes, or require medication. Your new doctor will be able to liaise with your usual hospital Consultant if necessary. During the holidays you can return to your home GP and be seen as a temporary patient as needed. This will save you time during busy Freshers' week. Please provide us with your NHS number. If you do not know this, you could find it by contacting your previous GP surgery. Please also ensure that you provide us with your Chester address as your home address.
