Trudy Harrison, MP for Copeland, has praised the major investment for West Cumberland Hospital, saying it is 'fantastic' news for patients.
The funding will help to deliver faster diagnosis for conditions including cancer, easier access to mental health services, expansions of A&E departments, shorter waiting times for operations, and more services in GP surgeries.
“There has been huge progress in improving patient care and this funding will help to secure the highest quality, most compassionate patient care anywhere in the world.”
