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.
When you walk through the door, one of the first things you’ll notice is that this Trust is full of talented people. Not just in the fields of medicine, nursing or diagnostics but in every part of the organisation. We are professional and passionate people who are all working together in an open and supportive culture.
We are committed to offering you a rewarding career and ensuring you feel a part of a flexible workforce that constantly seeks fresh ways of delivering the best care for our patients.
We don’t just look at you for who you are now; we look at you for who you could be in the future. We take training seriously, and encourage you to do the same. As a Trust we want to recruit, develop and retain skilled and motivated people to maintain a high performance culture.
Come and be a part of it!

Life at ELHT: Colleague stories
We strive to create a workforce that is:
If you’re wondering whether we’re the employer for you, the answer is that a career here is what you make of it. The opportunities are all out there, waiting. The rest is up to you.
In November 2018, the Trust received a prestigious HSJ award for ‘Creating a Supportive Staff Culture’. This demonstrated positive culture change is happening throughout the organisation, and is much more than an ‘initiative’, it is the way we do things at ELHT. Engage to Make a Difference has enabled all our colleagues to play their part in the continuous improvement of the Trust.
Our National Staff Survey results improve each year. We have above average scores for engagement, and are now in the top 20 percent of organisations on 16 key measures of staff satisfaction. Our own surveys have similar findings – 81 per cent of staff would now recommend the organisation for care and treatment, and 74 per cent recommend it as a place to work.
