"nothing being done for me "

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

Despite being an advocate of Tameside General Hospital whom I have defended for years both professionally and personally. I unfortunately have left another gynae emergency appointment in agony & bleeding profusely. I had to crawl out with the aid of my elderly mother who was in tears also.

If I was a dog I would have the protection of the RSPCA however I am deemed to be a neurotic middle aged menopausal woman and as such deserve nothing which is what I got.

I appreciate the Hospital has problems at the moment, however I fail to understand how any human being could leave another to suffer this way.

I am sorry that your experience of our services has fallen below what we would expect. I am assured that you have since been seen by a Consultant and care pathway agreed. If you like to make contact with the gynae clinic they will be happy to discuss your care further

Kind regards,
