Reminder: march to support West Cumberland Hospital this Sunday

A march to support maintaining services at West Cumberland Hospital is being organised for Sunday 14th June by the We Need West Cumberland Hospital group.

The march begins at the Market Place gazebo at 1.30pm then will proceed up King Street, turning off at Lowther Street and walking to Castle Park.

Obviously one of the services which the march is supporting is consultant-led maternity - so anyone who wants to keep that service at West Cumberland Hospital should #SupportOption1 and support this march if at all possible - though this protest is wider in scope than just maternity and also supports maintaining all district general hospital services in Whitehaven.

There are currently a series of reviews of hospital services in the county and it is important to show the NHS Trusts that we need to keep a full range of services in West Cumbria. A whole series of rumours and leaks are appearing in the newspapers and have had a predictable impact on morale at our hospitals. It is important to show the staff who work at WCH that we support them.
