We provide high quality healthcare services primarily to the residents of East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen, which have a combined population in the region of 530,000.
ELHT&Me is the official charity for the five hospitals that make up East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust - Royal Blackburn and Burnley General Teaching Hospitals, Community Hospitals Accrington Victoria, Clitheroe, and Pendle and our other community services.
ELHT&Me is committed to improving hospital facilities and supporting projects that fall outside of core NHS funding. The work of ELHT&Me enhances the physical environment of the hospitals for patients, staff, and visitors. Through fundraising, the Charity is able to fund projects which touch the lives of the thousands of people cared for by the hospitals and local community services each year. This includes providing state-of-the-art medical equipment, improving treatment facilities for patients, funding research, supporting staff development/training, and enhancing the hospital environment for all.
The charity encourages staff and the public to raise funds in order to improve the health and wellbeing of the local population. All funds are for the benefit of our patients and their loved ones. Your efforts, support, and donations make a huge difference for patients; improving the hospital environment, buying state-of-the-art medical equipment, funding research and teaching, and helping us to go way beyond the NHS standard. Donors are able to stipulate how they would like their monies to be spent or which area they would like to support.
The income generated, mainly through donations and legacies, helps to enhance the services of the Trust. ELHT&Me ensures that all funds donated to the NHS are dealt with and accounted for properly, in accordance with Charity Commission and NHS regulations.
