We, the doctors, nurses, administrative and attached staff of Barrowford Surgery will genuinely try to do our best for patients within the time and resources available to us. You can expect a level of care from this practice that is of the highest standard, based on mutual respect and trust. We aim to provide the best possible service in a friendly, professional atmosphere.
Effective healthcare is dependent on a successful partnership between the patient and the primary health care team. This means requesting help from the appropriate resources that are now available; you will find information about other healthcare professionals and the services they are able to provide within this website. We are continually working towards clinical excellence and any comments or suggestions you may have on how we can improve our service to you are always greatly appreciated. We are a small practice looking after about 3,600 patients, mainly residents of Barrowford and surrounding villages. We also have an outer boundary for patients who are already registered at Barrowford Surgery, who move out of our usual practice boundary. Please contact reception for more details.
Barrowford Surgery was inaugurated on 1st March 1993 by Dr Iain R Ashworth. He worked in the area for two years previously and also in several departments of both local hospitals - Airedale and Burnley. He was brought up and educated in and around Barrowford before graduating from Sheffield University Medical School. The surgery was initially sited at 2 Ingham Street, Barrowford until it moved to its current site on Ridgeway, Barrowford on 28th July 1997. The building was extended to its present size in 2004.
Surgery Opening Hours
The core hours are Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 6.30pm except Thursday when it closes at 12 noon and Fridays we close at 12noon until 1.30pm for practice meetings/training sessions. During these times we are available at the surgery or via the telephone.
Wheelchair access to the building is at the front entrance and doors are automated for ease of entry. The entire building was designed with disability in mind. This means that all patients with disabilities can be seen at the surgery rather than at home.
