"Short stay ..."

About: Cumberland Infirmary

I attended the hospital to have an infected abscess removed at 9am with no appointment. I was seen to, operated on and home by 9pm which I was extremely greatful about due to the pain. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable, they were all extremely friendly I couldn't thank them enough considering I am a very nervous patient!! Not a bad word to say about my first experience of an operation.
