Irwell doctors' surgery in Bacup provides the highest quality healthcare to patients in the area. Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional service and this surgery website will help us to keep all our patients up to date with news and information about our practice.
Historically Bacup was an industrial town which specialised in the cotton and slipper industries. The practice is based on the former site of one of these mills (Irwell Mill), in a spacious and modern Health Centre in the centre of Bacup on Rochdale Road.
Due to the retirement of two local GP’s, the existing Bacup and Stacksteads practices decided to merge and form one practice to provide services to all the patients. Dr Cormack, formerly of Todmorden Health Centre, joined the merged practices at this time. Irwell Medical practice was officially formed on 1st April 2005. Dr Morris joined the practice in 2006.
Opening Hours (for full details see the appointments page)
The Health Centre is open Monday - Friday 8.00am - 6.30pm (extended hours Mon/Tues).
Our surgery is fully accessible too, and has facilities for, disabled patients.
