"Day Surgery: Treated with respect and friendliness"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I spent a few hours in surgical/endoscopy unit and the staff could not have been any nicer. My husband went in the same unit and he also was treated with respect and friendliness.

I chose Tameside hospital because I have confidence in the staff and treatment they provide. I am due to go back next month and no it will be no different.

Keep it up Tameside.
