Patients

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust carries out in-patient, out-patient and same day procedures, for the local community and further afield. Patients come to our hospitals with a wide range of clinical needs from diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

These pages contain information about what you can expect as an in-patient or out-patient and also information about the patient advice and liaison service (PALS) who can offer you on-the-spot help, advice or support.

You can also find out about patient and public involvement and how you can have your say in helping us to improve our services to patients.

We recognise that sometimes things don’t go as well as we would expect - and when this is your experience, we need to know. Find out more through these pages.

Clinical Teaching and Other Learners

It is the hospital policy to assist medical students during their training. You may, therefore, be asked for them to be present during consultations, examinations and/ or procedures. You have the right to refuse if you wish.
