"Thank you for the caring and the prompt service..."

About: West Cumberland Hospital

What I liked

Having a room to myself behind the reception desk of the Coronary Care Unit.

The caring attitude of the staff

The prompt reaction of the ambulance, coming on narrow roads to where I had my heart attack

Anything else?

Just a big thank you for looking after me in the Coronary Unit for four days and arranging the transfer to Blackpool Victoria Hospital, where I underwent a double heart bypass operation. I am now recovering well at home and walking a little more each day. Hope to be back on those mountains soon.
