Work begins on new hospital and health centre in west Cumbria

Work will start today on two major west Cumbrian health developments.

Construction firm Robertson has been chosen to build the long-awaited new £11m Cockermouth Community Hospital and £4m Cleator Moor Health Centre.

The projects are being delivered through the NHS Express (Local Improvement Finance Trust) LIFT programme – a partnership between the NHS and private sector

The two projects were granted planning permission in 2010 but have been awaiting funding approval, which has now been secured.

The Cockermouth hospital will be built on land next to the current Isel Road site, which is more than 100 years old. It will combine GP and community hospital services.

Work is expected to be completed by winter 2013.

The Cleator Moor health centre, on Birks Road, will incorporate a range of health services on one site, with scope for expansion if needed. This work will be complete by next summer.

Robertson opening a new office in Manchester last month.
