About: Cumberland Infirmary

What I liked


What could be improved

No examination or treatment given by the Dr seen. This has resulted in another trip to another hospital where i am now been given treatment for a serious injury which should have been treated at my visit to Carlisle hospital. The lack of treatment for the injury at carlisle will now cause me life long problems.
