The appeal by ELHT&Me aims to raise funds to invest in new equipment and improve facilities. It will enhance the patient environment at ELHT’s five hospitals – Royal Blackburn and Burnley General Teaching hospitals and community hospitals Accrington Victoria, Clitheroe and Pendle.

The appeal will focus on improvements that are ‘over and above’ normal NHS provision, such as specialised medical equipment and better patient facilities. This will enable East Lancashire to have the best equipment and facilities and be cutting edge in everything we do.

Seven areas have been selected where money raised will be spent.

- children and babies health
- supporting cancer patients
- improving equipment
- women's health
- men's health
- making patient areas more friendly
- improving the patient experience
