There are two hospitals within the Trust; Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle ITU has 8 beds (L2 & L3 patients) and the ITU in West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven has 6 beds, also L2 and L3 but no surgical patients.
Myself and 2 other trainees (Jane Hedley & Anna Owens) started our training in January and are the first ACCP's appointed by the Trust. We work across both units. There are plans to recruit more but we have no confirmed details yet.
We are training at University of Northumbria (Newcastle).
