"Fantastic care for my mother"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

My mother was transferred to the Elective ward from AMU. She is still a patient there now. She is 91 and vulnerable.

The staff there have been fantastic. They have shown kindness and compassion towards her at all times. Leaving her each day has been very difficult for all of her family but we sleep much easier knowing that she really is in safe hands.

All staff and allied professionals really do demonstrate the very best of our often maligned NHS. Thank you to all

Response from Lindsay Stewart, Deputy Director of Nursing, Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

Thank you for taking the time to post these positive comments. To hear from you that our staff in these areas got it right for you and your mother will only encourage them to continue practicing in this way and remind others that this is what we must strive to do all the time. I will share these comments with all the staff.

Thank you again.

John Goodenough

Director of Nursing

We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed.
