Merger of Colne Corner and Earby Surgery Posted on 9 Aug 2016

GP applicant information here

We are considering the merger of Edward Street Surgery, Earby, and Colne Corner Surgery to merge and work as one Practice with effect from 1 July 2016.  

Primary Care, and in particular general practice, is changing fast. A significant number of GPs are approaching retirement age and recruiting new GPs to the area is not easy.  The NHS, like many public bodies and other sectors, is experiencing tight finances.  We believe that if we are to succeed in providing high quality patient care in the future then we need to think about how we can make the most of our limited resources.  This includes finance, workforce capacity and practice premises. Working as one practice rather than two will enable us to make the best use of the resources we have, and ensure a better future for our patients and staff.
