Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS in West Lancashire and Public Health England (PHE) are well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases.
The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
