"Good care received whilst in Tameside hospital"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I had three procedures performed at the one stay on the women's health unit, all the staff from the Consultant, theatre staff and ward staff were friendly and reassuring. The ward was very clean and the domestic staff appeared hard working and friendly. The Consultant was attentive, reviewing my care three times each day. Prior to admission, out patient appointments were prompt and efficient and I was offered a choice of anaesthetic or epidural and talked through each option and supported when I had made my choice. I can't fault the care that I was given, and not once did I feel that I was not treated with dignity or made to feel that I was just one of many. I would recommend The women's health unit at Tameside Hospital to any one I know.
