"I have had surgery at this hospital. I was..."

About: West Cumberland Hospital

I have had surgery at this hospital. I was treated with the utmost respect.. One of my friends had open heart surgery in \London and it was only after they came home other complications were found. They were treated very well by a very caring staff. Another friend and neighbour was in the hospital because of a stroke. He was there months and was treated kindly and cheerfully by all the staff. The only pressure came from Admin trying to take his bed away when he didn't have a contingency plan. Doctors and Nurses are great. Stop beating up on them. Leave our hospital alone. Give them what they need to do their jobs properly. I have visited the hospital for my own knee replacement and to visit two sick friends so the dates below are not accurate. All of 2014 would be more accurate.
