UPDATE: Suspension of birth services at Helme Chase Maternity Unit no longer going ahead

A temporary suspension of birth services at Helme Chase Maternity Unit at Westmorland General Hospital will now happen.

Due to a cancellation of the planned essential maintenance works in the theatres at Westmorland General Hospital, the temporary suspension will no longer go ahead.

Birth services were due to be suspended from 5pm on Friday 23 February 2024 for a period of around four weeks but this will no longer take place. Birth services at the hospital will remain open as usual.

The planned work will now take place from Friday 8 March. Therefore, birth services will be suspended at Helme Chase from 5pm on Friday 8 March 2024 for an anticipated four week period. Community midwife appointments and the home birth service are unaffected.

University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Trust said they apologise for the late notice in the change of dates - this was due to reasons outside of the Trust's control.
