Urgent Care Delivery Board

The CCGs are members of the central Lancashire Urgent Care Delivery Board.

The Urgent Care Delivery Board is the forum where all partners across the local health and social care system come together to undertake the regular planning of service delivery to ensure operational resilience.

The local Urgent Care Delivery Board comprises of NHS Chorley and South Ribble CCG, NHS Greater Preston CCG, Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and North West Ambulance Service.

This group was formally known as the System Resilience Group (SRG), and became the Urgent Care Delivery Board from October 2019.



Please note: The system resilience group met on 25 January 2017, following the reopening of a 12 hour emergency department (ED) at Chorley Hospital on 18 January 2017. It was agreed at this meeting that, going forward, the system resilience group would meet on a monthly basis to discuss progress towards reopening the ED on a 24 hour basis.

From January 2018, the staffing position at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals will be discussed as a standing item as part of the A&E Delivery Board monthly meetings, rather than at separate bi-monthly SRG meetings. Following the A&E Delivery Board meetings, updates on the staffing position will continue to be made available on this web page.

Please note, a total of 17 Middle Grade doctors are required to cover 24 hour ED at Preston and 8am to 8pm at Chorley Hospital.
