The Chief Inspector of hospitals in England has recommended that the NHS trust that runs the Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal be placed into special measures.
It follows a series of inspections that found that the quality of care at two of its hospitals needed improvement, although the Westmorland General itself was providing a good service overall.
The county's two other main hospitals are already in special measures.
