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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Please can we remind all patients not to contact the surgery regarding the COVID-19 or flu vaccinations for over 50’s.  We still have no further updates regarding the COVID-19 vaccine programme, nor have we been instructed to vaccinate all over 50’s who are not in the at risk category for flu.

We are still offering flu vaccinations, but only to the vulnerable and at risk groups.  If you have been invited for a flu vaccination, please give us a call to ensure you receive one.  It would be helpful if you could let us know if you do not wish to have the vaccination, this could be done through message on your Patient Access, by email or telephone.

The practice is under immense pressure, as you can imagine, so please can we ask that you do not ring the surgery with any enquiries about either of these vaccinations.  Updates will be on social media and our website.

Thank you for co-operation.
