Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest and highest performing trusts in the North West. Our purpose is to always provide excellent care with compassion.
We provide a full range of district general hospital services to 390,000 people in Preston, Chorley and South Ribble, and aim to deliver excellent care with compassion which meets the individual needs of every patient.
Our ambition is to become the regional hospital for Lancashire and South Cumbria, and we currently provide a range of specialist services including neurosurgery and neurology, oncology, burns and plastics, renal and disablement to 1.5m patients across the area. We have recently been accredited as the regional major trauma centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria and are working towards expanding our range of specialist services.
During the past few years we have significantly increased our participation in national and international research programmes, and are one of the country’s leading cancer trial patient recruiters, demonstrating our commitment to developing new and progressive treatment which improves health outcomes.
We provide award winning education programmes for medical, nursing and allied health professional students in our state of the art learning facilities which are amongst the most advanced in the country.
We employ more than 7,000 staff across two hospital sites, and are committed to working in partnership to deliver seamless care to patients close to home.
