Welcome to Lambgates Health Centre


3 Before GP

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.

Telephone Services

We are always trying to think of ways to improve our services, and our telephone system was one of the areas that was mentioned the most.

We have a shorter opening message from Dr Palmer and we have introduced options to our telephone service:

  • Press 1 for Appointments 
  • Press 2 for Test Results - Please note this is between 11-am and 2pm only
  • Press 3 for Prescription Queries - Please leave a voicemail and the Prescription Clerk will return your call before 3pm that day.
  • Press 4 for the Secretaries for Referral Queries 
  • Press 5 for the Cancellation Line - here you can leave a brief message to cancel your upcoming appointment. Please note this is not to re-arrange; it is purely to cancel.
  • Press 6 for Any Other Queries

We hope this will make telephoning the practice a lot easier and you can save time by being put through to the correct department at first.

We would welcome any feedback on this new service.


All calls may be monitored, recorded, stored and used in any telephone, email or other communication with you, in order to check any instructions given to us for training purposes, crime prevention and to improve the quality of our services.

National Data Opt-Out Programme

NHS Digital is developing a new system to support the national data opt-out which will give patients more control over how confidential patient information is used. The system will offer patients and the public the opportunity to make an informed choice about whether they wish their confidential patient information to be used just for their individual care and treatment or also used for research and planning purposes.

Patients and the public who decide they do not want their confidential patient information used for planning and research purposes will be able to set their national data opt-out choice online.

For further opt-out information, please visit the NHS Digital site:

And if you would like to opt-out, you can follow the process using the link below;
