"Othopeadics consultation"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Arrived on time, acknowleged straight away and asked to wait in a side ward. After 40 minutes I approached the recption to rearrange an appointment. Told the consultant would be with me shortly. Waited approx. 10 minutes and then sent to Xray. Dealt with very quickly and efficiently. Then back to wait for the consultant.

Response from Cumberland Infirmary

Many thanks for getting in touch, I am pleased to hear that your appointment went smoothly. Many thanks also for your patience in waiting.Our outpatient clinics are very busy and it is not always possible to predict accurately and precisely how long each patient's consultation will take due to varying levels of complexity. Best wishes Alison Patient Experience
