Burnley General Hospital

Burnley General Hospital provides a full range of hospital services.  This includes general and specialist medical and surgical services along with a full range of diagnostic (e.g. MRI, CT scanning) and support services.

Burnley General Hospital is East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust's site which specialises in planned (elective) treatment.

The hospital includes an Urgent Care Centre for treatment of minor injuries and illnesses.  It does not include an Emergency Department or supporting facilities such as out-of-hours intensive care - these services are provided from the Royal Blackburn Hospital.

In November 2010, the Trust opened the £32 million Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre.  This state-of-the-art building includes East Lancashire's centralised consultant-led maternity unit, as well as a Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a midwife-led birth centre and a purpose-built gynaecology unit.

In May 2006 the Trust opened the "Phase 5" development, a £33 million investment in new treatment areas, including new inpatient and outpatient facilities.
