Consultations Are By Appointment Only

Please bear in mind that surgery times vary for each doctor from day to day and not every doctor is available all the time.

We offer a selection of both GP and Nurse 'extended hours' appointments. These are available at the practice during the following times:

Tuesday 18:30 to 20:00

Friday 07:15 to 08:00 

Improving Access to General Practice

We’re pleased to announce that extra GP and nurse appointments are also now available in the evening and at weekends. Local GP practices are working together to offer patients better access to GP appointments in Rossendale – that means you will be able to see a GP or practice nurse at a time which is most convenient for you.

Evening and weekend appointments are available at various sites across East Lancashire, the nearest being Haslingden Health Centre. To book an appointment contact us at the Practice and we’ll book you in.

When We Are Closed


If you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until we are open please ring 111 for assistance.

You can also attend a:

  • Walk-in Centre located at Accrington Victoria Hospital, Heywood Road, Accrington, BB5 6AS. Services available from  08.00 - 20.30
  • Minor Injuries Unit at Rossendale Primary Care Centre, Bacup Road, Rawtenstall. BB4 7PL. Services available from 08.00 - 20.00

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In an emergency you should call 999.
