The South Lakes MP is encouraging people in South Cumbria to take part in a national radiotherapy consultation.
It's part of Tim Farron's ongoing campaign to bring a radiotherapy unit to Westmorland General Hospital.
The consultation is being run by NHS England, they want to hear the views of patients, carers and members of the public to see how radiotherapy services can be improved across the UK.
Mr Farron has described the consultation as "a golden opportunity". He said: “This consultation gives us a golden opportunity to highlight the need for a satellite radiotherapy unit at Westmorland General.
“The situation we have at the moment in the South Lakes where those who are already very poorly are being forced to make a 2 or 3-hour round trip every day, for weeks, in order to receive life-saving care, is simply unacceptable.
“I had a very positive meeting with Professor Price, who shares our concern about the nearest radiotherapy centre for many people in South Cumbria being over 50 miles away.
“This campaign continues to gather more and more support, and next Friday I’ll be meeting with NHS England commissioning specialists for the North West to make the case for bringing this vital service to the South Lakes.
“I would strongly encourage anyone who supports our campaign, to take part in the consultation so that the need for a radiotherapy unit at Westmorland General is put firmly onto the national agenda.”
The consultation closes on Monday December 18th and can be found here.
