We Demand Emergency Ambulances Are Not Reduced Across The North West
THE region’s ambulance service has been forced into a U-turn over plans to cut services across parts of Cumbria.
The North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) has announced it will not be removing an ambulance from Carlisle or a rapid response vehicle overnight from Penrith, after campaigners gathered 11,500 signatures from local people.
Campaigners held a heated public meeting and thousands of people signed a petition, which was delivered to Downing Street.
