"Don't Bother. Ask to go to Newcastle!"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Anything else?

Was told by a consultant "what do you expect me to do, it's 3pm on a Friday." Then was referred for an MRI scan, which I asked to be made available because I was being treated in Newcastle. It was not made available and hindered the doctors in Newcastle from making a decision. Would avoid at all costs!
