About: West Cumberland Hospital

What I liked

I was treated on 11th September in the A & E dept and cannot speak too highly of the care and consideration I received. i had broken the top of the left humerus in a fall near Buttermere and was in a considerable amount of pain. The nurse who dealt with me could not have done more or dealt with my case any better even though the department was overwhelmingly busy. They were considerate , kind , efficient and kept me and my husband informed at all times.

I should like to say a very big thank you to all concerned in my care and treatment.

It was exemplary. I should also like to tell Andy I hope his knee improves and thanks again
