Hospital public meeting tomorrow
The Whitehaven public meeting about the "Closer to Home" proposals for local hospitals is tomorrow (Monday 14th) from 7pm to 9pm in the Civic Hall.
There have been encouraging signs in the past four days that the logjam of discussion between the trust and local doctors is beginning to move. It is beginning to seem likely that a new consensus on issues like bed numbers may emerge which will address some of the public's main concerns.
However, it is still extremely important that there is a strong turnout to show how strongly the public feels about the need to support our hospitals.
