Welcome to the Parkside Surgery Website.
We have included lots of information about the services we provide and how you can make best use of them. There are also links to information about looking after your own health.
We aim to keep the information on these pages as up to date as possible but if you notice any errors or have any other comments about the website please let us know. Please note that we are not responsible for the content of any linked websites.
We are a busy town centre practice in Burnley serving a population of over 9900 patients. The doctors and staff work mainly out of our purpose-built surgery (Parkside) which opened in 2003 in a wing of the old Prestige factory on Colne Road. We also have a branch surgery (Foxcroft) on Pendle Way where we provide more limited services and opening hours.
We also have a close working relationship with the District Nursing team, Health Visitors, Midwives and Nursing Home Nurse Practitioners.
The Doctors at Parkside Surgery and Oxford Road Medical Centre are pleased to announce that their practices will merge from April 2018.
The Doctors along with their teams see this as an exciting opportunity which will enable them to build on the high standard of care that is currently delivered.
The NHS is changing by moving some care out of hospitals closer to home. We therefore need a broader range of skilled medical professionals to work closely with our patients. By becoming a larger practice we will be able to have the expertise needed to focus on our patient's needs.
Why our practices?
Both practices were looking to work more closely with other surgeries in the area with a view to expanding the care services provided.
It soon became clear that both practices were well matched in their values and vision of patient care for the future. We both realised that there was a need to change for the future and develop our services.
All our existing practice premises will continue as normal. We have no plans to close any of the sites. However you will have the added benefit when making an advance appointment of choosing where you would like to be seen. We plan to offer a full range of services at each site.
Over the coming months you may start to see new faces in our surgeries whilst we get to know each other. Please speak with any of our team about any concerns that you may have.
How can you be involved?
Over the next few weeks there will be leaflets and questionnaires available in our waiting rooms to seek your views and we would like to hear from as many of you as possible. We will take your answers into account when developing the services across the new practice.
