Practise Medicine in Eastern Cheshire

 

Introduction

Cheshire is one of Britain’s most affluent counties, its towns and villages can often be found on lists of the ‘most desirable’ and ‘best places’ to live in the UK. The county is bursting at the seams with history, heritage and unspoilt countryside alongside flourishing urban developments.

Economy & Travel

The Cheshire East economy is one of the strongest in the region, with more than 10 per cent of the UK’s leading companies operating in the area including Bentley Motors, AstraZeneca, Waters Corporation and Siemens.

Cheshire East has excellent transport links, being served directly by the M6 and M56 motorways for road travel. There are also frequent bus and rail services to Manchester, which boasts Britain’s third largest airport with flights to 225 destinations worldwide and three major rail stations with direct trains around the country.
