Due to GP illness we are running an EMERGENCY ONLY Service today. We are very sorry for the inconvenience but unfortunately this situation is unavoidable. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. 

UPDATE 11.30am - We can now offer a limited number of urgent appointments this afternoon.

We are currently experiencing very high demand due to the level of winter illness.  For coughs, colds and vomiting etc. please self care with over the counter products.  If symptoms are persistent your pharmacy can advise you.

A number of practices across East Lancashire including ours have an issue with the telephone system which our IT department are working on at the highest level to resolve.  Please use our website or online access to order repeat medication or to book appointments.  We are sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Please email any documents to letters.clayton@nhs.net

Head lice

How to Manage Head lice

Practice guidelines for treatment

  1. Wash hair in the normal way using an ordinary shampoo.
  2. Inspect the rinsing water for lice floating to the surface.
  3. Using LOTS of any hair conditioner and while the hair is very wet, comb through with a fine tooth comb. Make sure that the teeth of the comb slot into the hair at the roots with every stroke. Do this over a pale surface such as a paper towel.
  4. Sodden lice will not move and slippery hair is difficult for lice to get a grip on so they will be easy to remove with a comb.
  5. If you find any lice, repeat this routine every three days for two weeks.  

Please note had lice treatment is available at the Pharmacy for persistent outbreaks
