**WE HAVE BEEN SEVERELY AFFECTED BY THE RECENT CYBER ATTACK.  PLEASE ONLY CONTACT THE SURGERY IF YOUR PROBLEM IS URGENT.**

NORMAL SERVICE WILL RESUME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. FOXCROFT SURGERY WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE 

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.

 As part of our commitment to safe prescribing and the  responsible use of the NHS’s limited funds, Parkside  Surgery is working in conjunction with East Lancashire  Clinical Commissioning Group (EL CCG) and Medicines  Management Team to improve patient experience and  efficient use of NHS resources with the repeat  prescription ordering process.

Therefore from Monday 5th June 2017, your local pharmacist will no longer be able to order medicines or repeat prescriptions on your behalf. You can do this yourself, however, in a variety of ways listed below.
