- This week, the Conservative government announced the 78 hospital trusts that will receive state-of-the-art MRI, CT and mammography screening machines, so our brilliant NHS staff have the tools they need to quickly diagnose cancer and boost survival rates.
- North Cumbria's hospitals will benefit: these include the North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust (listed under the pre-merger name of the former acute hospitals trust.)
- Last week, we successfully negotiated a deal so that NHS England can offer three life-saving cystic fibrosis medicines, transforming the lives of thousands of people with this disease.
- We have also backed the NHS with an extra £33.9 billion a year by 2023-24, given the green light to 40 new hospitals schemes, and confirmed 20 hospital upgrades across the country.
