A Cumbria Health Scrutiny Committee meeting is being held at the county offices in Kendal.
Representatives from the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Trust (UHMBT) said they were trying hard to avoid a repetition of 'the crisis' of staffing, after high levels of sickness, at the special care baby network at the Furness General in Barrow.
At one stage the UHMBT was looking at temporarily moving the unit to Lancaster, but managed to avoid that by receiving help from other organisations.
They now say they want to 'grow their own talent' to improve staffing levels.
