A patient’s view of the West Cumberland Hospital

SIR – I was admitted to hospital on Sunday, March 6, not knowing what was wrong with me except I felt very ill. A day or two later, I discovered how ill I really was and felt an overwhelming gratitude to the medics and nursing staff for the treatment they had given and for making me feel there was a possibility I may just start to feel better eventually.

SIR – As a driving instructor in West Cumbria for over 43 years, and still practising part time, my biggest concern about the feared move of the test centre from Workington to Carlisle is the undoubted fact that if it takes place there will be a lot of learners and unlicensed drivers driving around unaccompanied, with no L-plates, but worst of all, no insurance.

Cumbria ‘should lead the way in creating less dangerous reactors’

cecaldhall SIR – As a result of the Japanese tsunami and the damage to their nuclear power plants, many other countries are having a re-think about their nuclear energy plans. As part of the continuing drive for the future of Cumbria’s Energy Coast there were plans for at least one replacement nuclear power station. More useless wind turbines are to be erected but they all need back-up power at windless times.

Clinicians tell of commitment to new West Cumberland Hospital

SIR – Someone once said that any person can have the facts; having opinions is an art. When it comes to the NHS, there is an abundance of artists. That is as it should be: the health service is the thread running through all our lives. It is there when we enter the world and, more often than not, when we leave it.
