"Unplanned Admission"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

I went to WCH at about 2015 on Thursday 10/7/2014 with severe chest pains, admitted to A&E, and cared for faultlessly. Ongoing heart attack was diagnosed, and I was transferred to Carlisle by ambulance and had a stent fitted and was on the recovery ward before midnight! Absolutely first class, and fantastic co-operation between WCH, ambulance service and Cumberland Infirmiary.
