We operate two full Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments at Furness General Hospital and the Royal Lancaster Infirmary, as well as an Urgent Treatment Centre at Westmorland General Hospital.
The Urgent Treatment Centre at Westmorland General Hospital is not able to treat emergencies including chest pains, severe breathing difficulties, mental health issues or suspected strokes etc. Patients who experience these conditions need to be treated urgently so should either dial 999 or attend the Emergency Departments at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary or Furness General Hospital in Barrow.
If you need urgent medical care but it's not an emergency, see some of the alternatives to A&E below.
