Our Trust has four clinical care groups and employs over 8,000 members of staff working at sites across Morecambe Bay. We operate from three main hospital sites - Furness General Hospital in Barrow, the Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal, as well as a number of community healthcare premises, including Millom Hospital and GP Practice, Queen Victoria Hospital in Morecambe and Ulverston Community Health Centre.
Furness General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary have a range of 'General Hospital' services, with full Accident & Emergency Departments, Critical/Coronary Care units and Consultant led beds. Westmorland General Hospital provides a range of General Hospital services, together with an Urgent Treatment Centre.
All three hospital sites provide a range of planned care including outpatients, diagnostics, therapies, day-case and inpatient surgery. In addition, a range of local outreach services and diagnostics are provided from community facilities across Morecambe Bay.
Our community services
We also provide a wide range of services for adults within the community across Cumbria. These services are provided in people’s homes, community centres, clinics, GP Practices, community hospitals and acute sites.
Our community services work with people to help them remain independent, improve their health and manage their conditions through high quality care, advice and support.
Examples of our community services include: district nursing, cardiac rehabilitation, heart failure, palliative care and an integrated rapid response service.
