Welcome to Barrowford Surgery

Our statement of purpose - ‘Health is Wealth’

Mission Statement

We, the doctors, nurses, administrative and attached staff of the Barrowford Surgery will endeavour 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.

Our Aim

We aim to provide the best possible service in a friendly and 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 booklet.  We are continually working towards clinical excellence and any comments or suggestions you may have on how we can improve our service to you and to other patients are always greatly appreciated. We are a small practice looking after around 3,500 patients, primarily residents of Barrowford and the 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. If you have any questions regarding our Practice boundaries please contact reception for more details.

He was brought up and educated in and around Barrowford before graduating from Sheffield University Medical School.

Disabled Access

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.
