"Excellent Care"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

Anything else?

After recent operation was cared for on Kirkstone Ward. Care both there and the admitting Ward, Skiddaw, was excellent. Staff were very attentive and kind and nothing was too much trouble. Surgeons and Theatre staff were also exceptionally kind and explained everything in detail, making sure I was at ease with their light hearted but very professional, approach. This is the second time I have been a patient on Kirkstone and I have to say both times my care on that Ward has been excellent, all staff are a credit to the hospital.
