NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) commissions healthcare services for patients registered to its member GP practices.  In August 2020 this covered a population of 175,029 people and is considerably higher than the resident population of the Blackpool Council local authority area.

The health economy across the Fylde Coast is developing new models of care which will be delivered in four neighbourhoods across Blackpool; integrating a range of primary, community, acute, social, third sector and other services around the registered populations of practices. Neighbourhoods are based on groups of GP practices covering populations of 30,000 to 50,000, patients (see figure 2), and builds on their local health, social care, voluntary service and estate assets available to deliver integrated care. Taking a geographic approach enables the various supporting links among statutory, public and third sector services to be maximised. It also ensures that some of the more enduring problems of social isolation, loneliness and poor mental health, much of which underpins poor physical health, will be tackled more effectively.

Further information about the neighbourhoods and plans for new models of care can be found at Fylde Coast Primary Care Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhood Profiles

Profiles of the four neighbourhoods have been produced to provide information on a number of key indicators in relation to GP cluster populations. They contain descriptive analysis of the registered population in terms of its geographic spread, age/sex structure, deprivation and prevalence of health conditions to create an estimation of the health needs in these areas compared to Blackpool as a whole and England.
