"All staff kind, caring and polite"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as a friend),

My friend was admitted to the Elective Ward at Tameside Hospital Foundation Trust in early March 2014 for elective surgery under the care of Dr Benhamida. She has been so pleased with her care she wanted to share her experience here and reassure others going into Tameside.

She was terrified before going into hospital (she had heard lots of bad stories) but found all the staff, Dr's, nurses, physio's and the domestic staff kind, caring and polite.

She is very relieved that it is all over and that she had such a good experience. She is now continuing to make a good recovery, with no problems or complications, at home.

Since returning home she has found the district nurses equally as helpful
