"Day surgery carpal tunnel release"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Fantastic professional caring and compassionate experience from the onset. As a needle phobic (and apparently carpal tunnel surgery phobic patient) the team put me at ease and nursed me through the worst. Can not thank the team enough. Recovery has been speedy and trouble free due to the cleanliness of the surgery area and skills of the surgeons. Well done girls and lads of cic. Recovery staff were excellent too. Would come again but only had two hands needing operated on lol x

Response from Cumberland Infirmary

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. It is really pleasing to hear you had a good experience and especially as you must have been worried about it with your needle phobia. The nurses and doctors try really hard to place patients at their ease and I will pass your comments to the Day Surgery staff. I am very pleased to hear you found the cleanliness to your satisfaction and I will ensure the domestic staff are made aware of this as we are one team here with everyone having a role to play. Thank you again for taking the time to comment. Helen North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust.
