SOME wonderful examples of support to our NHS in today's edition of The Mail.

Well done to the lads from Barrow Eats for donating crisps, biscuits, chocolates and drinks to the hard-working staff at Furness General.

Credit too to BAE Systems for taking along goggles for staff to wear; which would have been particularly welcome given the worries about the need for Personal Protection Equipment (PPE).

And praise as well to everyone who has worked together to make the temporary hospitals across Cumbria become a reality.

An extra 500 beds are now available countywide for coronavirus patients should they be needed, a precaution which will take some of the burden off the NHS during these unprecedented times.

Furness Academy is one of the facilities involved, as you will see on page 4.

The school is expected to be used to house ‘on the road to recovery’ coronavirus patients ahead of being discharged and Walney School is also on standby to provide extra space in its sports hall if required.

This project across Cumbria has come about due to various services including the police, the army, councils, contractors and schools all working together.

This multi-agency approach of is exactly what is needed in this time of crisis as it's only by working together that we will get through this.
