Welcome to Cares
As well as raising awareness about the importance of early assessment, CARES are working alongside East Lancashire Health Trust on projects designed to reduce waiting times and the accessibility of diagnostic resources. One of our first projects is to support the raising of funds for a new Endoscopy Unit at Burnley General Hospital.
The Endoscopy Unit will allow in the region of an additional 5,000 sessions to be undertaken per year, helping to limit waiting times, diagnose more people and save more lives.
The cornerstone of CARES is that money raised locally stays local to that community, so the money that is raised by the people of East Lancashire directly benefits them.
