Debate continues on maternity beds

A mother who recently gave birth at the West Cumberland has made an appeal through local papers against any reduction in the number of maternity and SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit) beds at the hospital.

The trusts have promised that they are involving the clinicians in the discussions about bed numbers at WCH, but this is one area which everyone will scrutinise in great detail. We must make sure the hospital has enough maternity beds.

What do you think? The consultation may have finished but we should all continue to make sure the PCT and Acute Hospitals Trust cannot ignore local views.
