About: Cumberland Infirmary

I'm a 26 year old female who recently underwent surgery for a tonsillectomy at Carlisle. I received very professional care and was put at ease my the nurses, anaesthetist and surgeons. The operation was successful and everyone in the after care was so friendly. My post op plan was explained to me clearly and I've had no issues so far during my recovery.

Thank you to the staff who looked after me.
