(as a staff member),

This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who asked not to have their name published.

84 year old man with type 2 diabetes says his treatment by all medical staff and district nurses has been very helpful, and he and his wife are impressed with all services. They are aware, however, that they are both relatively healthy, and are articulate and educated, so they can access all help they need.

‘’Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed. Want to know more about what’s involved? Please contact John Goodenough, Director of Nursing at
