"Wonderful staff whom supported myself and my partner"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

The birth of my son was a prolonged one which ended in me having an emergency C section. We cannot praise all staff involved in my care enough. The professionalism and care was of a high standard and we cannot thank the staff enough for their support and understanding.

We felt- Wonderful staff whom supported myself and partner through a difficult birth of my son
