Furness MP John Woodcock will urge government ministers to get a grip of what he's calling the Furness General Hospital maternity crisis.
A debate will be held in the House of Commons today regarding the future of the Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust and it's services.
It follows the decision to temporarily close the consultant-led maternity service and the special care baby unit. An investigation is currently underway into the deaths of babies and mothers at the hospital and the trust has received criticism over a number of failures.
Mr Woodcock said: “The sudden withdrawal of services has seriously shaken the people of Barrow and Furness, with expectant parents and young families especially concerned about the prospect of being forced to travel to Lancaster to have their babies."
The debate can be watched live via the parliament website.
