"Once again a positive and relaxing experience"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

What I liked

Despite being in a temporary 'portacabin,' the Heart Unit was superb. I have always found the Cumberland Infirmary to be a great hospital, with a good service, caring staff and a high standard of cleanliness. I can only marvel at how the staff cope with some of the grumpier patients, who try to treat the hospital like a hotel. You get out of life what you put into it.

What could be improved


Anything else?

Be nice to staff, they've got a tough enough job.
