“I am so excited about the new facility. It’s amazing that our Trust has been given the mandate to build this specialist unit and I’m proud to be part of the new project. Thankfully perinatal mental health has finally been given the publicity and governmental support it has needed for many years. Mothers will be able to receive the care they need nearer to home whilst making partners and families lives easier too with reduced travel time.
“I live in the Chorley area and there is already a buzz of excitement building as the project gains momentum and staff I come into contact are asking questions about this specialist branch of mental health care!”
