About: West Cumberland Hospital

What I liked

The nurses entered the wards for their 12hr shift with a smile on their faces and left still smiling. Nothing was too much trouble and they were always two steps ahead of a situation. Doctors gave information that could be easily understood and were more relaxed in their attitude to patients something that has improved greatly over the years.

I have been in other hospitals in the past, one as recent as August this year and I can honestly say that the nursing staff far outshines any other.

I dont think you will find dedication and compassion such as this in any other hospital.

Thank you so much WCH I appreciate fully what you did for me when I needed you.

By the way every meal I had was delicious so well done catering staff.

What could be improved

Nothing at all they have it all off to a T
