About City Walls Medical Centre (click to view)
City Walls Medical Centre is located in the heart of the very attractive and historic Roman city of Chester. It is a large purpose-built medical centre which was opened in June 1997, and came into being following the merger of Nicholas Street Surgery and George Street Surgery. The Centre is now a modern, purpose-built surgery, offering a wide range of facilities and equipment to a very high standard. There is also a branch Medical Centre in the village of Saughall, 5 miles north of the City, which has been fully modernised and offers a full range of services.
9 Partners (including our Nurse Partner), Salaried GPs, GP Registrars, a Nurse Team, and our Admin Staff make up our Practice Team. The present list comprises approximately 16,500 patients from a practice area that covers inner city and rural areas within a radius of around 5 miles from the centre of Chester.
The Centre has a pleasant waiting room area, with a designated children’s play area. The doctors' consulting rooms are situated around the perimeters of the main waiting room. This facility allows the doctors to collect their patients personally, which allows them to maintain a personal and friendly approach.
A Patient Arrival screen is available in the reception area for ease of booking-in, and video presentation screens showing practice information are situated on both the ground and first floors.
Our philosophy in the practice is to care for patients in a personal and friendly manner, and to look after the patients with empathy and sympathy at all levels. The surgery offers a wide range of facilities and equipment to a very high standard and is a “paperless practice” using the full range of computerisation to assist clinical decisions and recording of data.
Education and Training are important parts of our practice life - the practice is an Undergraduate Teaching Practice. We hold regular internal educational and training meetings within the practice for all staff.
The doctors are supported by the practice manager, nurse manager, practice nurses, computer manager and a total of twenty-five secretaries and receptionists. Also working from this surgery are counsellors, health visitors, district nurses, phlebotomists, and community midwives.
These facilities are provided from consulting and treatment rooms on two levels within the Centre, which has a passenger lift and is fully accessible by the disabled. Baby changing facilities are also available.
