The East Lancashire NHS Trust (ELHT) has a total of over 950 in-patient beds at Burnley General Hospital and Royal Blackburn Hospital. In-patient rehabilitation services are also provided at Pendle Community Hospital and at the Rakehead Unit at Burnley General Hospital, which specialises in neurological rehabilitation. There are therefore a large number of Specialty Training Posts in many different areas at ELHT.

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.

The Medical Education Centre also provides administrative and pastoral support to the Specialty Trainees during their time at East Lancashire.
