UHMBT de-escalates to OPEL Level 3

24 January 2024

Whilst University Hospitals Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) remains under pressure, the Trust has taken the decision to de-escalate back to OPEL Level 3, as of 4pm today, Wednesday 24 January.

This decision was made because the pressure at UHMBT has reduced to a level which while still very significant, does not meet the OPEL 4 criteria. Whilst these de-escalations are positive news it is important to note that our services do remain under extreme pressure.
We would like to thank the public for their patience and understanding while our clinical teams restore our services to operational capacity.
