West Cumbria Community Forum Writing Group

At the second meeting of the West Cumbria Community Forum it was agreed that a small Writing Group should be established to develop an easy to read document setting exactly what services will be in the new West Cumberland Infirmary so that people have a good understanding of what will happen, and where, once the new facilities open.   

This group is being facilitated by Healthwatch Cumbria and comprises representatives of the community, the third sector, Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, North Cumbria University Hospitals and Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust .  The group met for the first time on Tuesday 10 March and started with a comprehensive tour of the new hospital before sitting down to agree the framework for the document.

An early draft of the document will be shared with members of the West Cumbria Community Forum at its next meeting on 27th March 2015.
