East Lancashire NHS Trust

Return to list of services

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust was established in 2003 and is an integrated Health Care Provider located in Lancashire in the heart of the North West of England, with Bolton and Manchester to the south, Preston to the west and the Pennines to the east forming a natural boundary with Yorkshire.

We provide high quality healthcare services primarily to the residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, which have a combined population in the region of 530,000.

We provide a full range of acute hospital and adult community services. We are a specialist centre for hepatobiliary, head and neck and urological cancer services, in addition to providing specialist cardiology services and a network provider of Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care.

Our key commitment is to the delivery of the best possible healthcare services to the local population while ensuring the future viability of our services by continually improving the productivity and efficiency of services. This core focus has enabled demonstrable improvement in our key access, quality and performance indicators.

There are two private finance initiative (PFI) schemes for parts of the buildings at Royal Blackburn Hospital and Burnley General Hospital sites, valued at over £70m and £20m respectively. We continue to make major investments in our healthcare facilities, predominantly focusing on our on-going commitment to the Burnley General Hospital site.

In April 2011, adult community services became part of the Trust with an annual turnover of around £40 million. We are working together to ensure that all patients have a high quality service whether they are in hospital, in the community or their own home.
