County expresses concern about "Closer to Home"

Cumbria County Council's cabinet looks set to express some of the same concerns about the "Closer to Home" proposals, particularly the plan to centralise major trauma in Carlisle, as have been expressed by doctors at the West Cumberland.

There are signs of a consensus developing that some parts of the proposals are good but that the centralisation of trauma treatment is overdone and that more beds are needed than currently proposed.

More details to follow later today.
