Millom Hospital public meeting tonight (16th May 2014)

There is a meeting at 5pm this evening (Friday 16th May) at the Beggar’s Theatre, Market Square in Millom to discuss the future of Millom Community Hospital

There is widespread concern in Millom about the future of the hospital. In-patient services are temporarily closed because of a lack of GP cover.

The Trust has promised that it has no plans to close the hospital. It has been very healthy to see massive support from the people of Millom for their local community hospital: at the same time, it is extremely important not to discuss the issue in alarmist language. That woud be highly counterproductive because the main issue for the hospital is recruiting and regaining staff and particularly getting GP cover: we need people who come to work in the NHS in the Millom area that their jobs have a secure future.
