Hospital Site to be set by December?

At a presentation this afternoon at a Copeland Council meeting we were advised that the Strategic Health Authority has given the green light for submission of a business case for a new Acute Hospital in West Cumbria and that it is hoped to make a decision on the siting by December.

There was some discussion on the siting. It has been erroneously suggested in some quarters that Copeland Council supports Pow Beck as a site for the new hospital. It was confirmed today that this is not correct.

The actual view of Copeland councillors, confirmed today by people of both parties, is that we support a new hospital in Whitehaven, on a sustainable site with good access to the A595.
