"Thank you to Tameside A&E department"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I was admitted with Lone AF early in the morning. Granted, the dept was not busy but the treatment and staff were second to none. The doctors and nurses were attentive, kept me informed, administered medication and did all the tests and X ray without delay and even arranged for an echocardiogram before I went home. I have had private medical treatment in the past but this surpassed that, and since this is not the first time I have been in Tameside Hospital with this complaint, I can see how much things have improved over the past few years. This was excellent service, my thanks to all concerned.
