Welcome to NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG

Welcome to the website of NHS Chorley and South Ribble Clinical Commissioning Group.

We are a clinical commissioning group (although you will mostly hear us described as a CCG), that plans, organises and buys a range of healthcare services for people that live in Chorley and South Ribble.

We are part of the National Health Service (or NHS), but being a clinical commissioning group means that we are run by local healthcare professionals, such as family doctors, hospital doctors and nurses. We are also a member organisation – our members are made up of all of the 31 GP practices in Chorley and South Ribble.

Use our website to find out more about us and the work we do, to help you find out about local health services in your area, and to see how you can get involved in decisions made about local healthcare.


Did you know that by stopping smoking, you'll be protecting the health of your non-smoking friends and family?

Breathing in secondhand smoke increases the risk of lung cancer,heart disease and stroke. In children it doubles the risk of getting chest illnesses, including pneumonia, ear infections, wheezing and asthma.

They also have three times the risk of getting lung cancer in later life compared with children who live with non-smokers.

There are many benefits associated with stopping smoking, that's why Chorley and South Ribble CCG is supporting the Stoptober campaign this October.
