Case for Change hub
Welcome to the Lancashire and South Cumbria New Hospitals Programme Case for Change
Our Case for Change report is the first in a series of official documents that we need to produce in our journey towards new hospital facilities. It explains the problems that we hope to address through funding for new hospital facilities, and how this supports ambitions to improve health and wellbeing and deliver better care for local people. The report outlines the critical need for investment to address significant problems with our ageing hospitals in Preston (Royal Preston Hospital) and Lancaster (Royal Lancaster Infirmary) and the need for investment in Furness General Hospital’s infrastructure in the context of its location and strategic importance.
We welcome comment on the Case for Change and are keen to hear from you – there is information on how to get involved and share your views below.
