"Tameside Hospital Day Surgery"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I would like to thank all the staff especially the nurses on the Day Surgery ward and theatre staff at Tameside who looked after me during my recent visit for surgery to my right shoulder.

From the time of entry 0730 to leaving 1830 I found all the staff from receptionist to surgeon caring, reassuring and accommodating at all times. The ward, toilets, corridors and pre surgery room were clean and tidy and equipment was well looked after.

After surgery the care and attention was exemplary, as was the coffee and toast before I was allowed home. I would have no problem recommending Tameside Hospital to family and friends.

Well done and Thank You.
