Farron pays tribute to outgoing local health boss

January 8, 2018 11:12 AM

Commenting on the news that Jackie Daniel is to step down as Chief Executive of the Morecambe Bay Hospitals Trust, South Lakes MP Tim Farron said:

"Jackie has done an absolutely amazing job.

"The Trust's remarkable turnaround from being in special measures to now being rated as 'good' is testament to the years of hard work and sheer determination from Jackie and all of the staff at our local hospitals.

"I'm extremely grateful for her dedication to our local health services and wish her all the best for whatever the future may bring.

"I look forward to working with Jackie's successor, as we still face many challenges not least from the £572m that the government are planning on cutting from local health services, as well as the need for an Urgent Care Centre and a radiotherapy unit at Westmorland General Hospital."
