Patients and Visitors

Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides a range of acute hospital and community services to local residents and tourists each year. If you are planning a visit to one of our hospitals, there is a lot of information available on our website that you may find useful.

Facemasks are no longer compulsory in all clinical areas but visitors may still be asked to wear them in certain wards or departments. Facemasks will still be available at the main entrances to our hospitals should visitors choose to wear them.

Think who can best help? If you are feeling unwell visit this page before travelling to Blackpool Victoria hospital. There maybe a more suitable alternative such as accessing your local pharmacy, GP surgery, Walk-in Centre and NHS 111.
