''A great place to be cared for; a great place to work''

 


The Royal Lancaster Infirmary, part of the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay, is on the doorstep to the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. The Trust is set in some of the most remarkable surroundings in the UK, facilitating an abundance of outdoor activities. There are many OFSTED ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ state primary schools which feed into excellent secondary schools.
