Burnley General Teaching 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 Teaching 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 Teaching 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.

The Trust Board have made the decision to charge blue badge holders for parking to show equity across all staff, patients and visitor groups. This decision was implemented in May 2018 and the standard tariff charges now apply to all across the East Lancashire Hospital sites. The Trust has made sure blue badge parking continues to be accessible and convenient for the use of its facilities. Furthermore the Trust has adhered to the national ratio for car parking spaces and where possible added addition spaces to enhance the patient, staff and visitor experience.

Concessionary car parking - Information for patients

The East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has a concessionary parking ticket available for visitors visiting the hospital frequently.

To qualify for a concessionary ticket you need to complete a form obtained from the car parking office located within the Lend Lease Offices at Burnley General Teaching Hospital (adjacent to the Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre).

There is a qualification period of three consecutive days for receipts with a minimum value of £10.50. The form must be signed by a senior nurse on the ward and the car parking team will then issue a ticket which will allow you access to the car park for four separate occasions.

The concessionary ticket will be valid for a period of seven days from the date the ticket was first issued.  When the ticket expires, you must then pay to park and obtain receipts as per the above criteria. In cases where you have been visiting for eight weeks you are entitled to a sixty day pass, this allows for unlimited parking during the sixty day period.  A new form will need to be completed at this stage. If the patient you are visiting is discharged then re-admitted at a later date then apply again.
