Special meeting of West Cumbria Community Forum at 2pm on Friday 4th September to discuss Breast Care

There will be a special meeting of the West Cumbria Community Forum this Friday, 4th September, to discuss a single item agenda.

That item is the One Stop Breast Care clinic which it is hoped to re-start at West Cumberland Hospital.

Dr Rod Harpin, Interim Medical Director of North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust, is attending this special virtual meeting on Friday 4th September from 2pm to 4pm to explain the position with Breast Care in West Cumbria and to seek feedback from members of the wider community.

The meeting will be chaired by Archdeacon Richard Pratt.

Members of the public can attend this virtual meeting or submit questions about the one stop clinic for Dr Harpin and his colleagues to answer by contacting Healthwatch Cumbria.

I know a number of elected representatives including myself are planning to attend. The Health Scrutiny Committee's Variations subcommittee, of which I am a member, will have to review the changes and the proposed public consultation and formally rule on whether this constitutes a major variation in which case the trust has to formally discuss with is the arrangements to consult the public.
