"My visit to A & E at Tameside General Hospital"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I injured my leg on Saturday and visited Tameside General Hospital, Ashton under Lyne on Monday. After a quick interview with a nurse I got to see Dr. Mohammed Afsa. He was friendly, reassuring and attentive and examined my injury, arranged X-rays, but ensured I quickly got back to see him, where, after a chat with his consultant, he planned my treatment.
