"Excellent care in A&E"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

Very unfortunately, my mum had to attend A&E recently.

The care and attention she received was second to none, despite the department being extremely busy.

My mum was very impressed with the hospital - she has just moved to Cumbria from Salford - and said it compared very favourably with Salford Royal Hospital which used to be her local hospital.

A sincere thank you from us all for the excellent care provided.

A&E staff do work within a busy in a busy environment but they always ensure that patients feel comfortable and feel at ease.
