"My stay on Overwater 1"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

I was rushed in to the hospital on Tuesday 8th April and I can say undoubtably that each a every member of staff made my stay both as comfortable and pain free as it could possibly be. I encountered consultants, doctors, pain management staff and many nurses who took their time to treat me with care and consideration and nothing was too much trouble for them. The auxiliary staff made sure I was comfortable and in need of nothing and the cleaners worked with a smile and a greeting every day. I am so grateful for everything that was provided for me or done to me. I am on the road to recovery thanks to a wonderful team of staff on a lovely friendly ward. Thank you all so much.
