Rhyddings Surgery is here to serve the health needs of anyone who lives in or near Oswaldtwistle. The Surgery started in the building next to the war memorial (originally the shop fitters) but since 2003 has been in its own beautifully adapted building. It was used as a vicarage before us, but before that it was a Doctor's Surgery.
There are surgeries every day with late surgeries on Tuesdays. Antenatal Clinic is on Thursday morning and Baby Clinic is on Tuesday morning.
We have a great staff team at Cornerstone Healthcare, who are all eager to give you the best service and care possible.

We accept anyone who lives in our practice area as new patients. You can register by completing a registration form which can be obtained from the practice. When you register, we will ask you to make an appointment to see either the practice nurse or healthcare assistant for a new patient health check. This will make sure that our records are accurate and all routine checks to promote your health and wellbeing (such as blood pressure/smear tests/mammograms) are up-to-date.
