Rory Stewart, MP for Penrith and the Border, has visited Cumbria Health on Call (CHoC) to congratulate them on being rated “outstanding” in the recent CQC inspection, and to wish them luck in the NHS70 Parliamentary Awards.
CHoC, which is based in Carlisle, operates from three locations in Mr Stewart’s constituency and, in grateful recognition of their outstanding work, Rory nominated them for the Excellence in Primary Care category of the NHS70 Parliamentary Awards, for which they have been shortlisted. The winners will be announced on 4 July at a national awards ceremony at the Palace of Westminster, which Rory will attend to wish his nominees luck.
Commenting on this success, Rory said: “I am incredibly proud of CHoC and this is really fantastic news, particularly in the NHS’ 70th anniversary year. Operating in one of the most rural and sparsely populated areas of the country requires real adaptability and ingenuity, and this latest CQC rating is testament to their success. I would like to congratulate and thank everybody at CHoC for the work that they are doing and I very much forward to welcoming them to the Palace of Westminster in July.”
