400 march to support West Cumbria Hospital Services

Just returned from the march to support keeping services at West Cumberland Hospital.

There was a good turnout of perhaps 400 people. When marchers arrived Castle Park there was a song and dance performance by local young people of a number from "Frozen" adapted to the need to keep our hospital services.

Among the speakers was retired consultant Mahesh Dhebar who previously worked at West Cumberland Hospital and suggested that the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust should have "West" added to the title (it would then be something like North and West Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust.) It was very apparent that, despite the good humour of the meeting, there was strong and unflinching determination to make sure we keep services at our hospital in West Cumberland.

This means that we must #SupportOption1" to keep consultant-led maternity at WCH and support all other services.
