System resilience group

The CCG is a member of the central Lancashire System Resilience Group (SRG). The SRG 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 System Resilience Group comprises Greater Preston CCG, Chorley and South Ribble CCG, Greater Preston Clinical Commissioning Group, Lancashire Care Foundation Trust, Lancashire County Council, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and North West Ambulance Service.

Please note: At the system resilience group 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. The first of these monthly meetings was held on 14 February 2017.

Further update: From 21 July 2017, the SRG has been held bi-monthly, following the central Lancashire A&E delivery board meetings. As before, the minutes of the meetings will be ratified at the following meeting, after which they will be published on this page.
