Support our hospital family and our dedicated NHS staff

We know people want to show their appreciation to the NHS and our wonderful staff.  We have received many generous donations so far - your help will be needed in the coming weeks to sustain these donations for our deserving colleagues. 

We are only accepting deliveries from businesses at this time. As per government guidelines, members of the public must stay inside other than for essential trips. To enable you to support us you can order via our Amazon wish list:

East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust has over 8,000 staff working across five hospital sites and provides community services across East Lancashire and Blackburn with Darwen. We are all working together to make sure our ELHT family can continue to care for yours. 

To enable us to accept all deliveries safely, in line with current social distancing and infection control protocols, it is imperative that you contact the Fundraising Team before delivering items. Please contact us on 01254 732140 or email Denise.Gee@elht.nhs.uk
