About: Furness General Hospital

What I liked

We had to visit A and E twice in one night with my son who had dislocated his shoulder. He was treated throughout with care, kindness and respect, and was reassured throughout. The care he received was excellent. Thank you to all the staff, but especially the doctor who put his shoulder back the second time!

What could be improved

Facilities in the waiting area.
