Greater Lancashire Hospital off Longridge Road has been operating since January 2014.

Now it is seeing a significant extension built so they can treat more patients.

The private hospital is to have a larger operating theatre, consultancy space and a general anaesthetic facility.

Executive chairman Gwam Rajiah said: “There has been a major shift in healthcare delivery recently, towards treating patients in their local area.

“At GLH, we work in partnership with other local providers to offer community-based healthcare of an exceptional quality.

“This expansion will enable us to strengthen further our relationships with local GPs and NHS services to ensure that patients can receive the treatment they need on their doorstep. This is a very exciting development for community-based healthcare in Lancashire.”

Gwam’s wife Sara also works at the hospital which is to see 30 new jobs created by the extension as it doubles in size.

Dr Sara Raijah said: “We are totally committed to providing highest quality, personalised, compassionate care.

“All our services are consultant led, so patients always know they are going to be seen by a leading expert in their field. The quality of patient care is of paramount importance to us.”

The work at the site in Bluebell Way is due to be complete by February 2020.
