The Location

The city is a northwest England town in Lancashire. It is home to a long beach, promenade, and three Victorian piers. Those attractions often encourage tourists to visit and have a stroll along the seafront, but the city offers much more than seaside amusements. The hospital itself is not located in the city centre. It is based in very picturesque surroundings with lots of greenery around. There are golf courses to enjoy, and it’s next to the zoo, one of the UK’s best animal parks! You may find yourself listening to the sound of parrots or elephants on your walk to the hospital!

As an IMG living here, you’ll likely settle down away from the bustling seafront; instead, you can make the most of the friendly and diverse neighbourhoods you’ll find throughout the town. Here are just some of the things that make this city an excellent place to live:

  • Affordable Accommodation
  • Easy Transportation Links
  • A diverse community
  • Local Community

The Trust

This is a teaching hospital and one of the biggest NHS trusts in the region. It is the regional tertiary centre for both Cardiology and Haematology, and the trust serves a population of close to 1.6 million people. Research is also one of the Trust’s proudest achievements, so for any IMG’s with a strong interest in research, the Trust will support you with your passion. The trust is focused on improvement, particularly regarding technology. The forward-thinking hospital is currently utilising the best medical tech to help both staff and patients, including remote monitoring technology for cardiac patients. This tech puts cardiac patients in a direct point of contact with the hospital when necessary, meaning they won’t have to go through their GP. In turn, that means reduced waiting times.
