Emergency Department

Contact number:   Switchboard 01772 716565

We are a multi-disciplinary team that brings specialist emergency care across both Royal Preston Hospital and Chorley District Hospital.

We are the Major Trauma Centre for Lancashire and south Cumbria. This service has developed in partnership with our specialty teams and is expanding to allow 24 hour cover for an emergency department consultant led trauma team. Due to the increase in demand from trauma cases, we have recently increased our resuscitation capacity by 50% and we have a co-located CT scanner.

At Chorley and South Ribble Hospital, our emergency department opens for 12 hours per day and caters for all emergency presentations except for major trauma. Our senior medical and nursing staff work across both sites to deliver a consistent level of care.
