    This service was established in 2008 by Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust. 

    The remit of the service is to provide a specialist assessment and treatment service for individuals who experience a significant range of distressing symptoms following an event which they have found to be traumatic.

    The service is based in Chorley and has a number of staff with specialist skills and experience in the assessment and treatment of trauma.
