The Past

Our present premises at 1 Castle Meadows were purpose-built in 1997. The practice was originally founded by Dr Charles Harris in Scotch Street, but his son transferred the surgery to 1 Lowther Street in 1934.

The Future

Lowther Medical Centre is a member of Copeland Primary Care Network which covers a registered patient population of circa 62,000.   The network is made up of seven member practices namely Distington Group Practice, Fellview Healthcare, Lowther Medical Centre, Mansion House Surgery, Queen Street Surgery, Seascale Group Practice, Westcroft House Surgery.  Copeland Primary Care Network has adopted a flat practice network structure where all seven practices are equal and employment contracts are shared across all seven member practices.

Lowther Medical Centre have invested in modern equipment and built a team of professional staff to provide comprehensive and modern treatment, whilst trying to preserve the best of traditional family medicine. We hope this website will give you all the information you require about the facilities available from our practice. If there is anything else you wish to know, please feel free to ask our staff at any time.
