NHS Southport and Formby Clinical Commissioning Group (SFCCG) is made up of local doctors, nurses, practice staff and member of the public, who are well placed to know the health needs and views of people living in the area.
SFCCG brings together 19 doctor’s surgeries covering an area stretching from Ince Blundell in the south to Churchtown in the north.
It is playing an increasing role in deciding what services its 122,000 patients need to improve their health and wellbeing. From April 2013, SFCCG became responsible for planning and buying or ‘commissioning’ may local health services, as part of the changes to the NHS.
To do this, SFCCG will work with a wide range of partners, including local people, Sefton Council, hospitals and community and voluntary organisations to make sure that health and health services in Southport and Formby continue to improve in the future.
