The North Cumbria University Trust has thanked its staff, despite hospitals in Cumbria falling short of national A&E waiting time targets.
Around 82% of patients were seen within four hours at the Cumberland Infirmary and West Cumberland Hospital, 10% below the target.
The Trust says it's still performing in line with the national average, despite having lower staff numbers.
