About: West Cumberland Hospital

What I liked

I was spoken to like a human being and the Consultant was very caring and explained everything to me every step of the way during discussion and examination. I cannot speak highly enough of the Consultant and their team involved in my care.

What could be improved


Anything else?

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hospital to my family and friends.

However, thank you for sharing your story with us and we are pleased that you felt the Consultant you saw was very caring and explained everything to you. It is really important that this happens. The experience of our patients is very important to us as it keeps us informed on what matters to our patients and also identifies areas for improvement. Once again, our sincere apologies for not getting in touch with your sooner than this.
