Due to recent health issues, i am seriously considering moving schools midway through my GCSE final year. I just want to know how much of a strain and affect this will have on my GCSE results?

This would be a massive strain. Many schools will not take new students in year 11 unless absolutely necessary (and then they sometimes refuse). The exam boards and subjects at a new school might not be the ones that you're studying now. You would need to deal with unfamiliar teachers and students. Please don't underestimate how difficult this might be both academically and socially. Sorry to hear that you're poorly.

I know someone who had to drop out of the school I went to after year 10 due to financial issues so was placed by the council in the nearest state secondary school. At first for him at least he found it hard to adapt as they offered different subjects to which he was studying and had to drop some and take up others. He had to stay behind at school practically everyday for the first term or so due to differences in the curriculum for different exam boards for the same subject. However he was still able to achieve very well in his GCSEs this year. If this is anything to go by, changing schools during this period is extremely tough but if managed correctly shouldn't have that large of an impact in your academic studies
