A surgical service will be launched at West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven on Tuesday the 18th of April.
The service will be aimed at treating oesophageal disorders. North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust say this will mean patients will no longer have to travel out of the county for treatments.
The breakdown of equipment meant patients had to travel to hospitals in the North East of the country for tests.
The service will also be provided at Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
