Sector: Health

North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust anticipates cutting the equivalent of 300-350 full-time staff between 2010 and 2015.

The scale of such changes will impact upon all staff disciplines, although the Trust will look initially at back office functions and support and managerial functions in advance of cutting frontline clinical posts.

The Trust provides acute hospital services across North Cumbria. The main hospitals are the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle and West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven.
