Public Meetings on health services in Cumbria

There is a set of extremely important public meetings about health services in Cumbria organised under the so-called "success regime" and starting next week.

The dates, times and venues for the meetings are:
  • Wednesday 4th May 1pm-2:30pm: Guide Hall, St. George's Rd, Millom
  • Wednesday 4th May 7pm-9pm: Solway Hall (Whitehaven Civic Hall), 75 Lowther St, Whitehaven
  • Thursday 5th May 12:30pm-2:30pm: Function Room, Skiddaw Hotel, Main Street, Keswick•
  • Thursday 5th May 6:30pm-8:30pm: Maryport Rugby Club, Mealpot Road, Maryport
  • Tuesday 10th May 7pm-9pm: Samuel King's School, Church Rd, Alston
The events will see presentations from clinicians and health service leaders on the Success Regime’s latest emerging thinking, before giving the public a chance to ask questions and also contribute their own views on the best options for the way health and care services should be run in future.

It is really important that we have a strong turnout of local people at these meetings to let everyone know that we value our local hospitals

Sir Neil McKay, the chair of the West, North and East Cumbria Success Regime programme board, said: “These public meetings are part of our engagement programme to ensure we give the public an opportunity to tell us, face-to-face, what they think of our emerging thinking and to contribute their own thoughts and ideas on how we can create an improved and sustainable health service in Cumbria.”
