GARDEN LANE MEDICAL CENTRE
The practice has historically had a large practice boundary. Over recent years, the majority of new patients joining the practice list have been focused within a short distance from the medical centre. The impact of having patients widespread across the Chester area means an increased travelling time for doctors when carrying out home visits. With more traffic on the roads as well, this also impacts on the travelling time between home visits.
With this in mind, the practice has applied to West Cheshire Clinical Commissioning Group to reduce its practice boundary and this has been approved. This will come into effect on 1 June 2019. A copy of the new boundary will be added to the practice website.
From 1 June 2019 the practice will only accept new registrations from patients living within the new boundary. Patients living in the area outside the new boundary will remain on the practice list but if they move house to an area outside the new practice area, then they would be managed under the out of area policy and asked to de-register. The practice will continue to provide GMS services to patients living outside of the new boundary and these will continue to remain on the practice list. The practice will register any new babies born to existing patients living outside of the practice area. We will also re-register any family members returning home to live with existing patients, for example, university students.
