Let's talk change

To keep patients and colleagues safe during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we’ve made temporary changes to many health and care services, such as keeping Westmorland General Hospital in Kendal to a 'COVID free' site. This was to help patients with their cancer treatments, who were normally treated at Lancaster to be treated more safely in Kendal.

We want to share with the public, what we've changed and why, but more importantly we want to know from you, how it has felt using health and care services during this time.

Our three videos – you’ll see them on the right-hand side of this page – are an introductory film with Dr Shahedal Bari, Medical Director at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, which looks at our response to the virus, followed by two films explaining what's changed in our hospital and community services and a GP talking about how doctors’ surgeries have had to adapt - they all have some questions for you too.

All of your feedback will be read and used to inform our future plans as we consider which services can go back to how they were and perhaps what services we should consider keeping as they are now.

quick question on your experience of health and care services in recent months.
