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 Tuesday and Baby Clinic is on Tuesday morning.
