Help Tim bring a Radiotherapy unit to Kendal

Local MP Tim Farron’s long-running campaign for a radiotherapy unit in Kendal has been given a boost this week as health bosses announced they have launched a formal study into the idea.

NHS England have started a feasibility study to look at the possibility of bringing a unit to the Westmorland General Hospital.

The study comes after Tim met with leading commissioners from NHS England to raise the lack of access to radiotherapy treatment for people living in South Cumbria and the need for a unit closer to home.

Currently most people in South Cumbria needing radiotherapy treatment have to travel over an hour to their nearest radiotherapy unit in Preston.


I/we, the undersigned, support the campaign to bring a radiotherapy unit to Westmorland General Hospital.
