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.
Work to create two new mental health treatment cubicles and a new and improved mental health assessment room with the Urgent Care Centre at RBTH will commence on Monday, 5 July, 2021.
The works will see a small waiting area, the current mental health assessment room and some storage space being converted into purpose-built facilities to provide a safe environment for patients presenting with mental health-related medical issues.
While the work is ongoing, this will cause some disruption for colleagues and patients and will last a period of 10 weeks.
Before attending the department, please do think about whether you really do need to come. NHS 111 can help you determine the best place to get the right treatment most quickly. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
