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.
East Lancs CCG is consulting on one proposal to improve access to GP services. Patients may take part in this consultation before 8th July 2016, by completing an online survey:
or alternatively by completing a paper version in the surgery.
