"My operation: Care was outstanding"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was admitted as a day patient on Sunday 30th June 2013 to have a lapascopic Cholecystectomy under the care of Dr Benhamida and his team at Tameside General Hospital.

The care I received from all of the team was outstanding. They dealt with all my concerns and reassured me about the procedure I was due to face.

I have nothing but praise for the team and I am recovering well from the operation.
