West Cumberland Hospital fire update

The local NHS Trust has confirmed that the fire which extensively damaged the energy centre of the new West Cumberland Hospital on Friday night has not damaged any other part of the hospital.

Services continue to run normally and patient care has not been affected in any way.

Most important of all, as I blogged yesterday, thanks to the hard work of the fire brigade and by the mercy of God, nobody was hurt.

However, the loss of the energy centre will delay the move to the new buildings, and almost certainly also delay the point where the hospital gets our of special measures.

An expert forensic investigator from Holland has been brought in to assist Cumbria Fire and Rescue in determining the cause of the fire, and will arrive tomorrow (Tuesday).
