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.

Patient stories

During our Governing Body meetings we invite patients to talk to us about their experiences regarding their health care – referred to as a ‘patient story’.

We will be bringing you the stories that were told at each meeting on film. Click here to watch the latest videos and to find out more about sharing your story.

GP extended opening hours

A number of GP surgeries are opening their clinics for longer to help patients gain access in a timely and convenient way. To find out if your surgery is involved in the scheme, contact them by phone:
