"Excellent care and attention provided by all staff..."

About: Westmorland General Hospital

What I liked

The ward on the hospital should be used as a model for all others to follow. The efficiency, care and attention provided by the staff was exemplary!

The physiotherapists as well as the nursing staff created a good healing atmosphere/culture in which I found I healed and became active quickly.

The food was very good too - initially I had little appetite but gradually the tastes tempted so that gradually I became stronger and healthier!

What could be improved


Anything else?

My only concern is that there are rumours that this hospital is no longer available for my second hip operation!

What on earth will happen to the excellent staff? Why on earth does such a great hospital with wonderful staff have to change?
