"4 days in Aspen"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

I've just spent 4 days in Aspen, taken in by ambulance on Saturday. I have nothing but praise for the professionalism and kindness of the whole team. In particular,the outstanding teamwork evident between everyone working on the ward, as they managed to get me from immobile to walking with a stick and then home in just 4 days. (I should have been in orthopaedics, but there wasn't a bed available. I don't think this made any difference to the quality of my care) They also worked hard to minimise the pain I was in, and get it under control. I would have no hesitation in recommending Carlisle to other people. My thanks
