"Tameside General Hospital"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I have just spent the weekend in Tameside General Hospital; I attended the Accident & Emergency department on Friday afternoon with a Transient Ischaemic Attack.

From entering the A&E dept to leaving the Hospital Sunday afternoon I can only heap praise on all of the staff who made my stay and the whole experience so calming for me.

A big thank you to all the Doctors, Nurses and Staff who made my stay, although not enjoyable nearly pain free.
