Briercliffe Surgery under new management

Briercliffe Surgery, Burnley is now under new management. The East Lancashire EU of GPs has taken on the contract for the management of the surgery as the existing contract ended on the 28th May.

The East Lancashire EU of GPs is a federation of local GPs who already provide extended GP access appointments and blood tests across East Lancashire for all GP practices. Briercliffe Surgery will continue to be run by experienced local doctors and staff.

The surgery and the federation are jointly committed to providing high quality care and modern services for patients in the area.

This is a management change. There will be no change to patient services. Patients will continue to receive GP services as normal and should continue to use the surgery as usual.

We will ensure that patients and those with an interest in the surgery are kept informed and updated.
