Summary version of our Case for Change (published July 2021)

Helping local people live longer, healthier lives

We have set our ambition to achieve the absolute best, world-leading care. Investment in our hospitals will go much further, having a positive impact on life expectancy, health and wellbeing of our population and bring jobs and skills to the region.

To achieve this, we have set the following objectives for the Lancashire and South Cumbria New Hospitals Programme:

  • Provide patients with high-quality, next generation acute hospital facilities that will improve health outcomes across our population.
  • Design new hospital buildings and facilities that can meet demand and are flexible and sustainable.
  • Reduce health inequalities and be ready to meet the health needs of the people of Lancashire and South Cumbria – both now and in the future.
  • Improve service delivery and provide access to cutting edge hospital technologies and deliver the best possible quality of care.​​​​​​​
  • Increase resource capacity and effectiveness, working collaboratively to increase integration in service delivery.
  • Have a positive impact on our local area, bringing jobs, skills and contracts to Lancashire and South Cumbria’s businesses and residents.
