Cockermouth's new, £11 million Community Hospital was officially opened this afternoon, Friday 15 August.
Although it's been open since January, a ceremony was performed by Medical Director for NHS England, Sir Bruce Keogh. The professor is also the author of the report that put North Cumbria's Hospitals in special measures.
Ryan Dollard was in Cockermouth to find out what the hospital will mean for patient care and whether services in the wider region are improving.
