(as the patient),

I am writing to give some high praise to Tameside hospital and all the doctors/nurses/staff that treated me on my recent admission.

Having suffered a very bad case of food poisoning and being a type 1 diabetic, I was rushed into Tameside A&E by my girlfriend. I was in a terrible state and was rushed through for immediate treatment once I was made stable. I was moved on to a ward where I stayed for a couple of days before I was well enough to go home.

Every member of staff was so helpful to me and my family during my time there. I really felt like I needed to put my story out to give people who seem to be getting a very hard time for things at the moment some positive news and know that people like myself are very grateful that they were there.
