WATCH: Jeremy Hunt congratulates Cumbrian hospital staff

Jeremy Hunt has sent a video congratulating staff at hospitals run by North Cumbria NHS Trust.

In the video the Health Secretary says "this is a message for all the staff at Carlisle Infirmary and West Cumberland Hospital at the North Cumbria Trust, just to say a huge well done, many congratulations on the news that you've come out of special measures today."

The Department of Health said that the use of the term "Carlisle Infirmary", rather than "Cumberland Infirmary", is because the hospital is in Carlisle, and is often referred to in this way.

Jeremy Hunt goes on to say the Department of Health is "proud" of the progress made at both hospitals, and that the news is a "big moment for the NHS".
