Pendleside Medical Pratice has an enthusiastic approach to medicine, education and training. We have a friendly and informal atmosphere with good working relationships between all members of the Primary Health Care Team.

Our Trainers are Dr John Zak, Dr Vanessa Warren and Dr Ahsan Raza. You are welcome to contact us to discuss your specific requirements and to visit us to see what we can offer you. Please telephone us on 01200 413600 or email us at for further details, or if you have any particular questions.

Pendleside Medical Practice is located within Clitheroe Health Centre, a purpose built Health Centre shared with one other practice. We are privileged to work in the beautiful Ribble Valley, with low unemployment rates and good schools.

The practice is fully computerised and has full NHSnet and Internet access. There is ready access to electronic information on the Practice Computer (EMIS) System. We maintain full electronic records with a high standard of information. We have been using a computerised system since the early 1980’s and have been “paper light” since 2003. We have sole responsibility for the patients at Clitheroe Community Hospital and have close links to visiting consultants who undertake out patient clinics there. We provide medical cover for a well equipped Treatment Room service.

Our local hospitals are within easy reach, Blackburn and Burnley are the main hospitals we are associated with, and we also have links with Preston, Lancaster and Airedale Hospitals.

The practice philosophy is to provide personal medical care, where the patient is central to our professional care.

Out of hours care from September 2004 has been provided through ELMS, East Lancashire Medical Services.
