Blackpool GP Practice Populations

Up until the 30th June 2022, NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) commissioned healthcare services for patients registered to its member GP practices. At this time, this covered a population of 176,803 people and is considerably higher than the resident population of the Blackpool Council local authority area (estimated to be around 141,100 in 2021).

On the 1st July 2022, The Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB) replaced the eight CCGs across the area, and is now accountable for NHS spend and performance, and responsible for the day-to-day running of the NHS in Lancashire and South Cumbria. As part of this system, on a more local level The Fylde Coast Health and Care Partnership ('Healthier Fylde Coast') brings together NHS, local authorities, care providers and other partners to improve health and care for people living in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.

The health economy across the Fylde Coast is developing new models of care which will be delivered in four networks / 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 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
