RLI de-escalates to OPEL Level 3

9 September 2022

  • Making improvements

Whilst the Royal Lancaster Infirmary remains under pressure, the Trust has taken the decision to de-escalate back to OPEL Level 3 at RLI. This decision was made because the pressure on the site has reduced to a level which while still very significant, does not meet the OPEL 4 criteria.  Whilst these de-escalations are positive news it is important to note that our services do remain under extreme pressure. 

We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while our clinical teams restore our services to operational capacity.
