Where are we located?
Thursby Surgery practice is located across two sites in Burnley, Lancashire.
Originally known as Thursby Road surgery, due to its location on Thursby Road, close to the Victoria Hospital.
The surgery moved to its current home on Browhead Road, in 1993, officially opening it's doors on 4th September 1993.
In 2020, due to the need to expand, the surgery opened it's Daneshouse Branch Surgery, located on Abel Street in Burnley.
Both surgery buildings have ground-floor, fully wheelchair accessible, consulting rooms and large reception areas. (Please note that the reception areas are currently not in use due to the COVID-19 restrictions within Catagory 2 healthcare environments)
The existing partnership consists of 2 full-time GPs; Dr Y Naheed and Dr S Khan.
Working alongside the surgery partners, Thursby Surgery also have 3 salaried GPs; Dr E Ahmed, Dr N Naheed and Dr N Iftakhar.
Our surgery clinical team also consists of an Advanced Nursing Practicioner, 3 practice nurses, 2 trainee nurse associates and an on-site pharmacy.
The practice also has a health care assistant who assists the clinicians and practice nurses with routine phlebotomy clinics and blood pressure checks.
