Chorley Hospital's A&E department will reopen on a part time basis from next year.
The trust has not been able to recruit enough staff to run it, instead it will be asking its doctors and nurses to work extra hours.
An independent review into the closure of the department has found that it could reopen for 12 hours a day despite staffing shortages. But the report says the department cannot return to a 24 hour service.
