Welcome to East Lancashire Medical Services

If you want more information on ELMS and its services please click on the tabs shown at the top of the webpage.

East Lancashire Medical Services (ELMS) is a registered society under the Co-Operative and Community Benefits Societies Act 2014, operating on a not-for-profit basis, delivering healthcare to the populations of Pennine Lancashire – Blackburn with Darwen and East Lancashire – 24 hours per day 365 days a year. 

ELMS continues to maintain quality without compromising patient safety and performance.

The local health economy is in a period of significant change, including the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but ELMS continues to have a key role in the Pennine Lancashire

health economy, supporting both primary and secondary care medical services in delivering the best possible care for patients, in the most appropriate place.  ELMS works in close partnership with other local providers and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) across the local health system.

ELMS continues to demonstrate its ability to respond, perform and deliver a high quality patient focused service in testing times.  This is possible due to a committed and effective corporate team and clinical and non-clinical colleagues, working together to deliver safe and high quality care to patients.
