"our hospital"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

The nursing staff and doctors are excellent work under pressure and using the resources available to them to it best potential. The shortfall is the management of the cleanliness not by the medical staff but by whoever manages the cleaning. If you look above the line of sight you see dust airvents in the lift dust on windows in the difiicult but not impossible places to reach. The hospital is old and showing it age but I hope this standard does not continue in the new wing.

Response from West Cumberland Hospital

Thank you for taking the time to comment on West Cumberland Hospital. I am sorry you have found the cleaning standards to be less than expected. I have passed your comments to the Estates department who manage the cleaning staff so as to ensure this is not continued into the new building.
