"I had to take my young daughter ..."

About: Cumberland Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had to take my young daughter in to hospital after being knocked unconscious. The staff were very helpful and friendly, and always explained what was happening.We had to stop in overnight but had taken no overnight things with us as we were rushed in. The staff were able to help us with toothbrushes and wash stuff and even a teddy for my daughter to cuddle as we hadn't been able to go home to get hers. As we had missed mealtimes, the nurses managed to rustle up something for us to eat. The playroom was excellent and well run.
