(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public. We have their details and will forward any comments to them, as they do not have an email address. They said…

This lady has commented on a number of services used in the past year.

GP – constantly changing nurses for COPD check – build a rapport then they change. Sometimes can’t have appointment because there is no nurse. In the past, the reception staff have caused a lot of problems, but now they are all excellent.

Tameside Hospital – hearing clinic quite good.

St Mary’s, Manchester – staff in nuclear medicine excellent.

Manchester Royal – clinic C staff absolutely wonderful. Consultant has recently changed, so a little worried – hope he is fine.

‘’Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. 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. Want to know more about what’s involved? Please contact John Goodenough, Director of Nursing at
