How the new University of Cumbria can help our hospitals

Today the new University of Cumbria was launched in Carlisle.This represents a huge opportunity for the county.

It begins to open the door on something of vital importance which was completely impossible without a strong University involvement: developing our District General Hospitals as a Teaching hospital.

This is not something which can be done overnight. But if local councils, PCT and the new university can all commit ourselves to the long-term aim of setting up a teaching hospital in Cumbria, we will have taken a step towards providing our hospital services with a more secure future.
