WATCH: £100million to go to Cumbrian hospitals

The Government has announced that up to £100million will be invested in the two acute hospitals in north and west Cumbria.

£30-50 million will pay for a new cancer unit at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. The same amount will be spent on the continued re-building of the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven and up to £5million will pay for eight so-called "Integrated Care Communities" to improve access to local services in the community.
