Ribblesdale is a term used for an area in the Ribble Valley and applies to residents who are registered with these GP practices: Pendleside Medical Practice, Sabden and Whalley Medical Practice, Slaidburn Country Practice and The Castle Medical Group. This area is a pilot site for new ways of working.

The views of people who live and/or work in the area are very important to us and will help to shape and direct the focus of the RCP’s work going forward.

The RCP are asking for the views of the public to help ensure that the focus of the pilot addresses issues that are important to residents with regards to improving and maintaining health, well-being and care in Ribblesdale.
