Cumbria to lose Ambulance Control Room

The number of ambulance control rooms in the North West is to be reduced from four to three and once again it is Cumbria which loses out.

Under proposals from the North West Ambulance Trust, the work of the existing Cumbria control centre is to be moved to a site between Preston and Garstang in Lancashire. From West Cumbria, this site will be a over two hours drive away.

The move co-incides with the loss of the fire service control. Both proposals have been resisited fiercely by local unions, but to no avail.
