People in Millom will stage a protest today against the alleged closing of Millom Hospital.
Campaigners say several thousand people are expected to march through the town.
They say staffing issues at the hospital mean it won't be able to stay open and believe that when the last patient leaves, the hospital will close.
But the NHS Foundation say the hospital will stay open and that staffing issues mean they don't have cover for in-patient wards.
