The best and worst GP practices in Pendle, according to patients, have been revealed.

Patients were invited to take part in the GP Patient Survey earlier this year, letting them have their say on their local GP surgery.

The best surgeries in Pendle, according to patients are Harambee Surgery, Reedyford Health Care Group and Whitefield Healthcare.

Harambee Surgery was the highest rated, with 90 per cent of patients rating it as ‘good’ overall, while Reedyford Health Care Group was rated as the second best in the borough, with 75 per cent of patients saying their overall experience was ‘good’.

At Whitefield Healthcare, 74 per cent of patients rated the overall experience they had as ‘good’.

The worst rated in Pendle were Dr Jehangir, PWE Pendle Valley and Nelson Medical Practice.

Nelson Medical Practice had an overall satisfaction rating of 47 per cent.

While at both Dr Jehangir and PWE Pendle Valley, 60 per cent of patients said their experience with the practice was ‘good’.

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust took over responsibility for the PWE Medical Group practices in February 2022. Neil Berry, Divisional Director of Operations responsible for PWE, said: "Thank you to all those patients who took time to complete this survey - your feedback is really important.

"We know there are areas for improvement and we already have a plan in place to improve our patient experience.

"If anyone would like to be part of shaping our future, we are setting up a new Patient Participation Group to help bring different ideas to the surgeries to help us treat patients better or to improve what we do in some way."
