New Year, New Hospitals Chief - let's make it a fresh start

Welcome to Stephen Eames, who took over on Monday as chief executive of the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven and Carlisle's Cumberland Infirmary,

I hope that the appointment of Mr Eames is used as an opportunity to take stock and review the pattern of services, and to reconsider some of the decisions taken by the previous management. In particular I would like to see the new Chief Executive, the staff, and the community work together to bring medical and support services back to West Cumberland Hospital in a safe and effective manner.
