Consultants meet the PCT

Hospital Consultants at West Cumberland Hospital met the PCT yesterday to discuss the "Closer to Home" proposals.

From the report given to Copeland Councillors today I had the impression that it was a lively discussion.

We were told that one issue on which there was some degree of consensus is the number of extra transfers from WCH to Carlisle and other hospitals as a result of the proposals. This is apparently now expected to be 1 to 2 out of hours emergency surgery cases per week.

On a number of other issues discussions are continuing.
