Welcome to CH Medical at Fields New Road Primary Care Centre
At CH Medical Practice in Chadderton the doctors and nurses take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. Our aim is to improve health and well being by providing a wide range of services based on individual needs.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do give us your feedback on this website. We welcome all patient suggestions and comments.
Changes due to Coronavirus – Business as Usual
Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have taken the decision to close our front doors to ensure the safety of all of our patients and staff.
We are however, open as usual via our telephone lines and email. Please contact us by phone and we will advise you accordingly.
Face covering exemptions
We understand that the general public may be anxious about the wearing of face masks, however, GPs are not contractually obliged, or in a position, to provide exemption letters or certificates for patients who believe they should be exempt from wearing a face covering.
The guidance suggests there is no requirement for the public to provide evidence, medical or otherwise, for exemption therefore a self declaration from the individual should be sufficient.
For more information please visit the GOV.UK website for further information on the use of face coverings:
Please see weblink below for downloading your own exemption card:
