How we’re ensuring the Lancashire and South Cumbria New Hospitals Programme benefits everyone
We’re following a clear process which gives everyone the opportunity to have their say and help shape the future of hospital care in the region.
Step 1. Make the case for change
We will explore and clearly communicate why changes to our hospitals are needed.
Step 2. Develop a longlist of proposals for the new hospital facilities
This will include looking at why, how and where changes might take place.
Step 3. Create a shortlist of proposals for the new hospital facilities
We will narrow the proposals down to those which are viable and submit these to the NHS for approval.
Step 4. Public consultation
This is your opportunity to get involved in the process through Covid-secure public events and digital questionnaires. Every opinion is welcome, and we will gather your feedback and use it to shape our final proposals.
Step 5. Submit the final proposals for new hospital facilities
These will contain all the information we’ve gathered, including your concerns and ideas raised during the public consultation.
Step 6. Help us create the new facilities
Through workshops and focus groups, you will help us define the look, feel, design and facilities within the new hospitals.
Step 7. Build our new hospitals
The aim is to open new hospital facilities by 2030.
