Healthcare is a major issue for us all, and the Guild City has much to be proud of, with the Royal Preston Hospital (RPH) at the heart of healthcare provision.
Handily situated in the north of the city, the RPH offers a full range of district general hospital services including an Accident & Emergency department and critical care unit. Dedicated regional services include but are not limited to those for cancer, neurosurgery and burns. The Royal Preston Hospital also serves as a major trauma centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria.
There are further major benefits from the specialist teams at the RPH working closely with neighbouring Chorley and South Ribble Hospital, just to the south of the city, an established hospital with its own Accident & Emergency department and critical care unit.
Away from these major centres, there is substantial provision of respite and palliative care within the area, and numerous quality doctors’ and dentists’ practices and surgeries, further details of which can be sought out via NHS Choices.
