"3 visits in one week"

My 80+ aunt had scraped her arm before coming to Keswick. Her skin was very thin and bleeding would not stop. We paid 3 visits in one week (week commencing 23 July 2016) to have dressings changed. The staff were marvellous - nothing too much trouble - and were very reassuring as she feared she may need a skin graft. She had lost her husband during the past six months and had visited Keswick every year for over 20 years. She had been apprehensive about coming without him but was determined to make the effort despite her injury. Very worried that the hospital is under threat of closure and hope this review may go some way to keep it open. Best of luck and many many thanks once again.
