Response from Cumberland Infirmary

Thank you for letting us know about your concerns around your grand-daughter's care at the Cumberland Infirmary. It is always a worrying time when a member of the family is in hospital and we hope she is recovering well. At 19 years, your grand-daughter is an adult so would have been assigned a bed on a adult inpatient ward. We are concerned about the matter of her medication and our operational service manager, Ryan Crellin, who looks after this service would be happy to speak with you. You can reach him by calling 01228 523444 and ask for him.
