"Kirkstone ward"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

I had a high tibial ostiotomy on the knee in January 2014, and all I can say is don't feel scared worried or nervious. The staff are absolutely great, make you feel comfortable and the after care is good. Nobody wants to go into hospital but if you have to then you'll be fine on this ward. Thank you to everyone on Kirkstone very much appreciated.
