Absolutely outstanding care by all the staff I came across In endoscopy at furness general. I am not from Cumbria originally and was nervous attending a new hospital but they were fantastic, friendly, very professional and made me feel so much better than I anticipated. Amazing set up and teamwork…. Thank you so much!

My elderly mum broke her hip. A & E were absolutely phenomenal. Which actually puts the rest of the hospital to shame. The food i would not feed to my dog. She left without actual being reviewed properly. Her own doctor has never told half of her problems .

Firstly I have had nothing but 1st class care from Furness General.
I came in to A&E with a sore eye and was in and out in just over 2 hours, which I didn’t think was too bad, and definitely less time than I expected. …

Absolute embarrassment to the NHS this hospital, me and my partner were rushed and fobbed off when going for a 30 week growth scan. The specialist said they would ring us to review some medication in 2 days. (5 weeks and we’re still waiting) changed to lancaster and couldn’t be happier with the care we got there

I’ve been told about the lovely sausages and excellent beer garden. Couldn’t fathom why there is a dedicated bin for mashed potato but I look forward to seeing it with my own human eyes. (Not to be confused with potato eyes) #savetheNHS

My 81 year old mother was a day patient at FGH having a hernia op. All the staff who looked after her were great, and helped her overcome her fears. Not easy times for NHS staff, and they were all kind & courteous. Well done!

Absolutely disgusting. My wife is very ill and they cast her off saying go see your GP and the GP does nothing. I need help to look after her but I am struggling on my own! The reception staff are ignorant and the doctors do not listen. The nurses are clueless and seem to think they are better then doctors. An utter joke!
