Burnley General Hospital has also received substantial investment which has seen the building of the new Integrated Urgent Care Centre and the Lancashire Women and Newborn Centre.T o support all these changes and developments we are looking for enthusiastic and motivated medical staff at all stages of their careers from Trainee Doctors/Dentists, through to Clinical and Senior Clinical Fellows and all points in between. As a medical staff professional within our Trust, you’ll work alongside our award-winning consultants and specialist teams; using and developing your skills and knowledge further in a supportive environment.
