"Knee replacement"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

After many bad reports of the hospital I was very reluctant to go there for my knee replacement operation. How wrong could I have been the service was wonderful. My treatment brilliant and nothing was too much for the staff. I am now back home and glad that I did not change my hospital venue. I just wish the press would take more notice of patients , whilst I was in for a week all the other ladies in the unit felt the same as me no complaints what so ever. We are in a back water of the country and staff will always be hard to get , as most doctors and nurses want to go to a bigger hospital who can blame them but that does not make our hospital bad. Our surroundings take some beating the Lake District on your door step who can ask for more,come on doctors and nurses give us a try!!! Very happy patient L.v C
