Online Bullying Awareness
Online Bullying is the foremost concern reported by children and young people. It can take many forms and is often an extension of other bullying activity. Online bullying is often done through Social Media platforms, SMS (text messaging) and other online environments such as online gaming platforms. The online environment can appear to be a distraction but it is important to remember that whether online or offline, bullying behaviour is still bullying.

About East Lancashire Clinical Commissioning Group
As a CCG we commission (buy) local health services for Burnley, Hyndburn, Pendle, Ribble Valley (excluding Longridge) and Rossendale. We receive a budget from the Department of Health to plan and pay for most local NHS services.
This includes commissioning planned hospital care, rehabilitative care, urgent and emergency care, most community health services, and mental health and learning disability services. We do not manage local NHS hospitals, which are independent trusts, however we do pay for many of the services they offer.
Our CCG is run by local GPs. We aim to buy high quality, safe, and effective health services that meet the needs of residents in East Lancashire. To do this we use local clinical expertise, evidence of good practice and also draw on the experience of patients who use the services we commission.
