Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre (LWNC) opened its doors in November 2010 as a brand new purpose built facility on the Burnley General Hospital Site.

The Centre delivers a range of services for women and babies coordinated by the Family Care Division of East Lancashire Hospitals Trust.

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.

Please note that the postnatal ward and birth centres no longer provide formula milk for babies – please see this document for more detail and feel welcomed to discuss this with your midwife.
