About: Tameside General Hospital

I underwent a sacrospinious fixation procedure in August 2013 which although very successful resulted in my needing a subsequent prolapse repair operation. The second operation was carried out on 5 March 2014 and I have had my follow up appointment and been discharged this morning. I cannot praise the Consultant and his team enough - both as an outpatient and an inpatient I was treated wonderfully, with dignity and respect, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Tameside Hospital to anyone - the care was second to none. Thank you so much - I feel totally normal again and it's wonderful to have my life back!
