Barrowford Surgery is part of Pendle East PCN. This consists of other GP practices in the Pendle area. As we are apart of this organisation we have various other clinical staff members who run clinics from Barrowford Surgery for our patients.
If you need a medication review it is not always appropriate for this to be booked in with the doctor. The pharmacists can help you understand and review your medication and help with you with any questions you have.
As part of the PCN we are now working with Core Prescribing Solutions. This enables us to offer remotes consultations with pharmacists for medication reviews
