Briercliffe Surgery Update

Update regarding recent changes at the Briercliffe Medical Centre, Briercliffe Road, Burnley.

As you may already be aware, there has been a change to the management team at the practice with effect from 29th May 2019.  This is because the contract between East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group (The CCG)* and the GP partnership at Briercliffe Medical Centre for the provision of GP services came to an end when the GPs at the practice dissolved their partnership on 28th May 2019. 

In order to ensure that GP services continued uninterrupted the CCG awarded a contract to the Lancashire EU of GPs Limited (The EU)* until 31st March 2020.  This is a short term measure until a permanent solution can be implemented.

The CCG, working with Briercliffe Medical Centre will be writing to all households registered with the practice to provide a more detailed update.  In addition we have provided a “frequently asked questions” document which we hope will answer any further questions registered patients and stakeholders will have.  These are here:
