Therefore, NHS East Lancashire CCG no longer exists and has been replaced (along with the othe seven CCGs in Lancashire and South Cumbria) by the new NHS Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care Board (ICB)

Extended GP Access

The extended GP access scheme means that patients can make an appointment to see a GP or nurse practitioner, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on week days and from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on a Saturday and Sunday.   The system has been set up by local GPs working collectively to improve access to GP and practice nurse services. The appointments available in these extra weekday and weekend hours are in addition to the usual GP surgery opening hours from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm.

The appointments will be available at GP access hubs across East Lancashire (these may not be your own GP practice).

To book an appointment call your GP practice or speak to your practice receptionists.
