"Different atmosphere"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General medicine

(as a relative),

Following on from my last story (171718) my husband was again admitted to Ward 46 late July until sadly he passed away. During this stay I have to say both my husband and myself could not have been treated with more care and compassion, there was a different atmosphere on the ward, and ward staff and medical teams helped me through a tough time. There are obviously a lot of changes going on, let's hope this continues throughout the hospital and hopefully in the future the stigma that Tameside hospital bears will fade.
