Welcome to Upton Village Surgery
We are a relatively small, urban, practice located in purpose-built premises, situated in the heart of Upton-by-Chester. The practice population is approximately 7,200. We are not a Limited partnership.
We play an active part in the planning of health services for the local community and the development of primary care through our involvement in the West Cheshire CCG.
We have introduced a new service that allows patients who are aged 18 and over and registered at the practice to consult with a GP electronically and offers alternatives to calling or coming into the surgery for common, more minor problems.
Using this service you can also access self-help content and alternative options available to you (eg pharmacy, symptom checkers). You can also complete your own annual review for Asthmas, Hypertension and Contraceptive Annual checks online.
To access the service directly click on 'Get Started Now' on the banner above.

Our aim is to provide a high standard of service and care to our patients, in a modern setting, whilst retaining the traditional values of family medicine. We endeavour to provide a caring, patient-centred and efficient primary healthcare service to all registered patients.
We undertake to listen to our patients, involve them in healthcare discussions, thereby ensuring our services evolve to meet their needs. This is in addition to continuing to provide a professional, high quality and non-discriminatory service.
