Our Centres

Here at the Health Academy we are committed to the provision of safe, effective and compassionate care through educational excellence.  We provide a wide range of high quality educational services and programmes that support attainment, achievement and advancement for all staff who work at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, in health care related services or for those who have an aspiration to do so.  We are devoted to providing a safe, positive, supportive and inspirational learning environment for all those we mentor and teach.

Meet the team that make it happen!

‘’I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help with the recent visit from NHS England.  Our teams feedback was how you did everything possible to make it happen.  The week before a member from NHSE came and without knowing their status, the staff on duty showed her to the space and offered her a drink. She was very impressed and described this as setting the tone for our organisation. I am always impressed with the education centres service and this sort of feedback shows it is not only me!!
