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

Long history of prostate problems. Bad experiences at Tameside Hospital. Insisted on being transferred to Stepping Hill, even though the journey by bus is lengthy from their home in Hyde, and he and family don’t drive. Now has had surgery and has permanent suprapubic catheter. Feels ongoing care and treatment now satisfactory, and believes that he would not get such good care in Tameside Hospital.
