"Closer to Home" discussed at Keswick Forum

I attended an interesting discussion this evening at the Keswick neighbourhood forum about the "Closer to Home" proposals.

It was a very calm and civilised discussion. Two important things came out of it

1) Members of the public are very concerned about the number of beds which our hospitals will have. The impression most residents have from the document is that it will mean fewer beds at Keswick hospital. The Trust were not able to give a clear answer on whether this is correct.

2) One important aspect of "Closer to Home" is supposed to be that GPs will take a leading role. Local residents would be very interested to know what GPs think about the proposals.
