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
