What's About?

We are situated west of the Pennines in east Lancashire and have five main hospitals. 

The newly constructed Royal Blackburn Hospital which is 45% larger than the old Blackburn Infirmary; has 42,000 square meters of floor space; 2,050 windows and took 72,000 cubic metres of excavation to build. Within the new build the corridor extends mile from one end to the other and the whole hospital is just less than a mile in total. 

The hospital is located approximately one mile outside of the town centre and a regular bus service operates past the main entrance. Acute services are based at this site including acute medicine, surgical emergencies and high risk surgery. There is also an extensive dining room serving breakfast lunch and evening meal, specialist diets and out of hours catering facilities, newsagents, hairdressers, cafe, and subsidised gym.
