Welcome to Lambgates Health Centre
Lambgates Health Centre serves the whole of Hadfield as well as its surrounding villages, our doctors, nurses and reception team take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.
We offer a full general practice service and run clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as contraception, minor surgery, childhood & travel vaccinations as well as free NHS health checks.
The information on this website is for both existing patients and those considering registering with us. You can find out about our services, how to access them and some general information about how our practice operates. If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete our registration form that is available from reception.
Please note that you will be registering with the practice rather than an individual GP. If you would like continuity with a particular GP please consider there may be a wait. However, all GPs can access your medical record and will be more than happy to help.
Lambgates Health Centre is a Training Practice. This means hospital doctors wanting to enter general practice spend twelve months with us in order to gain the experience they need to become family doctors. We also train Foundation Year 2 doctors (in their second year after qualification); medical students from Manchester University; nursing students and work experience students.
