Morecambe Bay health bosses have denied that there are plans to close the Westmorland General Hospital in order to invest more money in the Royal Lancaster Infirmary.

It had been suggested that a £150m windfall was set for the RLI in addition to a downgrading or closure of the Kendal hospital as part of a major review of how services are delivered across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.

And, although Morecambe and Lunesdale MP David Morris insisted the Lancaster site was to receive that sum, the trust strenuously denied there were any plans to shut Westmorland General Hospital.
