Consultation on Kentmere Unit
Kentmere Unit Update: Healthwatch Cumbria launch online survey

Healthwatch Cumbria has launched an online survey to support the Trust in listening to the community about the Kentmere Unit at Westmorland General Hospital.

The survey follows news that the decision to temporarily close the unit has been delayed until the end of the summer pending a fuller assessment of quality and safety concerns. The delay was made following significant concerns expressed by service users, carers and the community, coupled with the Trust’s desire to be absolutely clear that it has explored every possible option to meet the minimum standards without the need for temporary closure.

Now Healthwatch Cumbria is helping the Trust listen to the community before a decision is made later in the summer about whether urgent action at Kentmere is necessary on quality & safety grounds. The survey can be completed online and will be open until 5pm 8th July.
