About us

The Castle Medical Group was formed on 1 April 2000 as the result of a merger between the Railway View and Castle Medical practices, both based in Clitheroe Health Centre since 1975. The practice is committed to providing healthcare to all members of the family.

The main surgery premises are in Clitheroe Health Centre, which we share with a neighbouring practice. The Health Centre includes a large treatment room, which is available to the public for the treatment of minor injuries. In addition, the practice has premises known as the “Annexe” at 6 Railway View Road, Clitheroe. Appointments for all surgeries should be booked through the main surgery.

The practice is committed to developing the skills of doctors, nurses and other members of the team. We train medical students and doctors at various stages of their careers. We can also offer work experience placements to school students interested in pursuing a career in medicine. We are a recognised Training Practice for GP Specialty Trainees who are qualified doctors preparing to work in general practice, and Foundation Doctors working for a limited time in general practice as part of their hospital training. The qualified trainers in the practice are Dr Will Mackean, Dr Susie Owen, Dr Sunil Nedungayil, and Dr Mike Doherty.

Message to our patients – update on the COVID-19 booster programme.

The NHS and its partners are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID-19 booster vaccination programme to our communities.
All adults are eligible from Monday 13 December, and you will be able to book via the National Booking System from Wednesday 15 December.

Please do not contact the practice over any vaccination queries or try to book through the practice as this will stop patients with medical conditions being able to get through.

You can book your booster for 3 months from the date of second vaccine, and you can access the National Booking System to book the appointment from 2 months.

We are working at pace to increase the availability of appointments so that there are plenty of options for people on the National Booking System. Some local vaccination services will also contact patients directly.

New appointments are being added every day across our vaccination services. Further availability will come online from Wednesday 15 December.

We will be working with all our sites to take further steps to increase what they can offer again, including opening later and on more days.
All these appointments will be added to the National Booking System. We encourage everyone who is aged 18 and over, is yet to have their booster and who is approaching 3 months from your second vaccine to use the National Booking System to arrange your appointment when you are able to do so.

In terms of any planned appointments with The Castle Medical Group, there are no changes at the current time, and everyone should attend your planned appointments as normal. If we need to make any changes, we will contact you directly.
