"first class care"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

What I liked

my wife nearly died on several occations after a horrific accident, the medical team that met her in the a and e dept were amazing, there must of been 10 - 15 people in to help her, i heard on person say to another "i thought you were on leave this week" they replied "i am but when i heard about this lady coming in i thought i should come in" that says it all to me, itu were fantastic and these people all made sure that i have a wife and our 4 children have a mam. highly recommended
