As an Influence member you will be kept up to date with what’s going on at the CCGs as well as having the chance to share your views on the healthcare provided in Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre and act as a health champion in your community.
Influence is open to all Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre residents and individuals registered with a local GP. Patients, carers, the general public and employers of all ages are most welcome. Influence gives you the opportunity to share your views with us on local healthcare and to get involved in developing services locally.
As a member, you can directly influence local health services and ensure that patients and the public are at the centre of what we do. You will receive news updates direct to your email inbox and will be invited to complete questionnaires relating to local healthcare. Occasionally, we may also ask you to join one of our focus groups so that we can gather detailed feedback about a specific issue or topic.
No the scheme is FREE to join.

Under the Influence membership scheme, we also have the Influence Panel – a group of people who help to make sure that local health services are suitable for the people of Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre.
The panel meets monthly to help shape and review projects commissioned by the CCG. It is made up of people who:
- Want to have an input regarding local health services.
- Are able to work as a team to deliver constructive feedback.
- Understand the importance of citizen participation.
- Are able to commit to one training session and two hours each month.
We look to recruit for this panel once a year. If you’re interested in sitting on the panel get in touch with us or keep an eye on this page and your Influence updates.
It’s quick and easy to sign up to the Influence membership scheme. Please complete the short form below.
