What's going on at Cumbria's NHS Trusts?

According to both the Whitehaven News and information I am hearing from several different sources, the NHS Trusts in North and West Cumbria are trying to inhibit the Consultants at the West Cumberland from speaking freely to the press about the current hospital proposals.

If this is true, which I believe to be the case, it is a great shame. We need an open and informed debate about the future of our hospitals, and preventing some of the most knowledgable people involved in the local NHS from speaking their minds will not achieve this.

I am also following up a number of emails which have been sent to me by people who are concerned that there seem to be discrepancies in the register of responses to Freedom of Information requests to the local NHS Trusts.
