The Future of Maternity at West Cumberland Hospital

Conservatives locally in West Cumbria have been campaigning to keep services at West Cumberland Hospital and exercising our rights to say so under the terms of the consultation now under way.

The Prime Minister has written to the local MP explaining what she has been advised the "success regime" think about the maternity proposals as you can read here.

This does not mean that individual members of the Conservative party are required to support the "success regime" proposals where we think they are not in the interests of the area and we have no intention of doing so. 

I believe I speak for the vast majority of active Conservative members in West Cumbria when I say that we have no intention of supporting any option other than Consultant-led maternity at West Cumberland Hospital or anything else which reduces the provision of safe, accessible services at WCH.
