Statement on Health Scrutiny Decisions

Posted on Thursday 23rd March 2017

Stephen Childs, Chief Executive of NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group, said: "We fully respect the decision of Cumbria County Council's Health Scrutiny Committee to refer the Governing Body's decision on maternity to the Secretary of State. We will play a full part as the process becomes clear.

"We were pleased to be able to reassure the committee during mediation, and as a consequence members voted not to refer paediatrics and community hospitals.

 "We are pleased the committee has supported the development of services for A+E, to create a hyper acute stroke unit and to confirm changes to emergency surgery, trauma and orthopaedic services.

"We will now start planning and we will involve and update the community as that work progresses. No changes will take place until the services can be transitioned safely unless for safety or operational reasons.

"We will build on our close working relationship with the Health Scrutiny Committee."
