WCH Upgrade clears final hurdle

The final business case for the rebuild/refurbishment of West Cumberland Hospital has been signed off by the Treasury.

This is fantastic news.

We still have to fight to ensure that the magnificent new building contains all the services which were promised under "Closer to Home" but at least this represents a confirmation of a clear commitment by all the levels of authority from the NHS to the government to a continuing  District General Hospital in West Cumbria and they have put the money where their mouths are.
