Cancer care standards “exceeded” in North Cumbria

National standards for cancer care have been exceeded at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust (NCUH). This means that patients are being assessed, diagnosed and are beginning their cancer treatment more quickly at the Trust’s hospitals in Whitehaven and Carlisle. The Trust has recently installed a new LINAC (linear accelerator) machine bringing the latest technology in radiotherapy treatment to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.
