About us

Here at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals Charity, we are dedicated to making a difference to the thousands of patients treated at our hospitals every year.

Our aim is to enhance the services already provided by Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, so that patients treated at our hospitals have access to the best possible care, in the very best facilities.

Your donations help us go above and beyond the scope of the NHS by making a difference in four key areas:

  • Funding projects such as patient services and comforts
  • Funding specialist equipment
  • Supporting patients needs and staff welfare
  • Supporting the advancement of clinical research

With your support, we can fund those added extras that can make all the difference to our patients, when they need it the most.
