Cumbrian hospitals rated the best in the country for kidney treatment

A new patient experience report has rated North Cumbria University Hospital's NHS Trust's Renal Units the best in the country. The UK Renal Registry and the British Kidney patient association looked at 39 units across the country. The survey covered 8,162 patients and asked 43 different questions. The units in the Cumberland Infirmary and the West Cumberland Hospital scored 9.31 out of 10 in the overall experience category.

This is a fantastic achievement for everyone who works in our Renal departments. Everyone here does their very best day in, day out to make patients feel welcomed, cared for and informed.
