The Lancashire Suite is a six bed Private Patient Suite within Blackpool Victoria Hospital. We welcome patients from across the UK and abroad.
Private medical treatment often begins as a result of an NHS appointment with your GP, at which you identify your wish for private treatment. Your GP will refer you to an appropriate Consultant who will see you for a private consultation. The Consultant will require a referral letter from your GP before the consultation. Most of our consultants have dedicated private clinics and are seen at Blackpool Teaching Hospitals outpatients before or following NHS clinics, there is also a private consultation room available within the Lancashire Suite.
Income generated by private patients is invested back into Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in order to assist in supporting the services, facilities and improvements provided to NHS patients; this benefits all patients who come to the Hospital. In many cases, the ward you stayed on receives a percentage of these funds, in some instances 100% of the money claimed goes back to that ward/unit.
