Lancashire Eye Centre is opening on Monday, 13 December, at 4pm


Following a £19 million investment, our Lancashire Eye Centre will fully open on Monday December 13th at 4pm at Chorley District Hospital.

The building has three floors and will be able to deal with an increased number of patients in comparison with the current Ophthalmology unit.

The unit  includes a dedicated outpatient and diagnostic space as well as three additional theatres to provide extra capacity for patients requiring a variety of day case procedures.

The Ophthalmology department deals with the highest quantity of patients out of any section of our  hospital and employs over  90 staff, including 13 Consultants.

The new unit has been designed with the patient experience at the forefront. The various segments of the building are even colour-coded to help patients get to grips with the layout easier, especially those who are visually impaired and struggle to read signs.

Consultant Ophthalmologist Shveta Bansal who will lead the team at the eye centre at our Chorley and South Ribble Hospital site said

 “We are really pleased to be able to provide this additional facility which will help us to improve patient experience and will give our patients a choice of location and access to state-of-the-art facilities.

These are fully equipped with the latest in ophthalmic technology with ward and day-case lounge area designed for optimum patient comfort and flow”
