What is happening to our NHS

I have just received the following message from one of my friends in Cumbria who works as a doctor:

“Things look pretty bad for West Cumberland Hospital and they are slowly moving all acute services to Carlisle without the public realising. They now want to take doctors away from maternity and make it a midwife led unit too (cost saving) which seems very unsafe as it is an hour to Carlisle and midwife led units are designed to have units with obstricians nearby for emergencies (as in within 15mins).”

There is a meeting at Whitehaven Rugby League Club on Monday 29 September at 7pm. 1,124 people have signed up to attend on Facebook.,
