Welcome to The Health Academy

Launched in 2015, The Health Academy is the education arm of Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The Health Academy comprises three Education Centres at its heart, two at Royal Preston Hospital and one at Chorley and South Ribble Hospital. Our LIFE (Learning Inspirations for Future Employment) Centre was added in 2018 to promote careers in healthcare and to support a wide range of students from the age of five upwards.

Our aim is to provide safe, effective and compassionate care through educational excellence, and in turn, develop staff and learners with the same vision.

We provide a wide range of high-quality educational services and programmes that support the attainment, achievement and advancement of all staff and learners and are devoted to providing a safe, positive, supportive and inspirational learning environment for all those we mentor and teach.

We take genuine pride in the success of our learners and look forward to welcoming you in the future and preparing you for the next stage of your lives and careers.
