"Skiddaw Ward."

About: West Cumberland Hospital

I was admitted to Whitehaven Hospital on the 3rd August for an operation on my elbow, my care from start to finish was fantastic, the staff on Skiddaw 2 are wonderful even after a 12 hour shift nothing is too much. Special thanks to the Health Care Assistant and the deputy ward manager for their kindness and care.

Response from West Cumberland Hospital

Dear Jeanette,

Thank you for sharing your experience earlier this year at West Cumberland Hospital.

The staff do work really hard and they will be thrilled to hear they made a difference to your stay. I have passed your comments to the Matron for sharing with the staff and also to the Director and Deputy Director of Nursing.

I hope you are recovering well.

Best wishes


North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust.
