Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissiong Group

We are delighted to announce that on 1st April 2018 we joined the Fylde and Wyre Clinical Commissioning Group. We asked to move from Morecambe Bay CCG last year, following their boundary extension to include South Cumbria, as we felt we were very much on the fringe and that our patients would benefit from services closer to home in Fylde and Wyre. Please follow this link for more information.

Fylde and Wyre CCG also run an Influence membership scheme for patients. If you would like to learn more about the scheme please go to: http://www.fyldeandwyreccg.nhs.uk/influence/

Other Information

Self Care

Self-care is about looking after yourself in a healthy way. It can be anything from brushing your teeth, doing some exercise, managing common conditions (like headaches, colds and flu) or living with a long-term health problem, such as asthma or diabetes.

As part of a the local 'Better Care Together' initiative which is reviewing health services across North Lancashire, a local GP has created some Self-Care Videos. We would encourage patients to watch these videos before contacting the surgery for the minor ailments covered as they offer excellent advice that may save you a trip to the surgery.

You can view the videos on the Better Care Together YouTube channel ‘BCTMorecambeBay’, or you can visit their Website here. For other information and advice about self-care, please visit the Self Care Forum website here.

Patient Information Leaflets for a range of conditions can be found here.
