NHS West Lancashire CCG

NHS West Lancashire CCG is made up of 18 practices, who care for around 113,228 patients (April 2017) making it the smallest CCG in Lancashire-12. The majority (96%) live in the district of West Lancashire with the remaining patients mainly coming from Wigan (3%, 3,125) and Chorley (1%, 1,272).

The registered population is evenly split between females (50.6%) and males (49.4%) and whilst just over a fifth (21%) of the population is aged 65 or over, 29% are aged 24 or under, reflecting the student population, and 50% are aged between 25 and 64. Deprivation measures show that West Lancashire is one of the least deprived districts in England. Within the district there is wide variation in deprivation, with 32% of the registered population living within some of the most deprived lower layer super output areas (LSOAs) in England (IMD 2015 quintiles 1 & 2) and 48% living in some of the affluent (IMD 2015 quintiles 4 & 5).
