We currently have an open list and are accepting new patients
The team at Earby Surgery care for about 8,000 patients in the Pendle area. We have an open list and are welcoming new patients. We have modern premises with a spacious waiting room, a fully equiped treatment room, ECG and lung function testing, minor surgery facilities, women's and children's health services. We have recently been reaccredited with the prestigious Quality Practice Award from the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). At the time of writing we are currently one of only 17 practices in England to achieve this.
To make access easy for all, we have new automatic doors and a lift. In addition we have spacious toilet facilities to accommodate wheelchairs with ease.
DIAL 111 FOR OUT OF HOURS CARE
From the 1st September 2014 we will be trialling a new appointment system with the aim of offering more convenient appointments for patients. We will be offering longer appointments to those over 75. To accommodate this we will no longer have the late morning 'sit and wait' appointments. Appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance by telephone or on the website. Some same-day appointments will be available. There will also be a duty doctor available to deal with urgent and emergency requests.
We hope that the system will be easier and fairer for everyone but anticipate some teething problems during the transition. We hope you will understand and provide feedback by completing one of the forms which will be available in the waiting room.
Ambulance response times
The Patient Participation Group raised concerns about emergency ambulance response times in the area. Isolated cases may not be representative of the service as a whole, but we would offer to collect a series of cases and feed back to the ambulance service on your behalf. Please let the surgery know of any issues and we will take details.
