"Emergency treatment on a Saturday evening"

About: Westmorland General Hospital

Had pins & needles in my arm one Saturday evening.

After some time, they hadn't gone. My wife drove me to Westmorland General as a precaution.

Diagnosed with a TIA.

The care, attention and treatment was absolutely first class.

We were both made to feel welcome by each and every member of staff we came across.

Follow up was by way of attendance at the Stroke Clinic in Lancaster - this was arranged promptly and I attended 4 days after visiting Westmorland General.

A huge thanks to all concerned.
