"The care was exceptionally good"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I required left mastectomy for breast cancer. A bed was made available for me upon arrival. I was seen quickly by anaesthetist and surgeon. I was treated with the utmost dignity and my worries were respected. Everything was done to accommodate me and my family. The staff were kind and caring and appreciated the worrying and emotion time I and my family were experiencing. My care took place on Womens Health unit – care was exceptionally good. No bad bits to note other than the need for surgery. No changes to care required, keep up the good work! !

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

Thank you for sharing these comments, We have passed these positive comments onto the breast care team, and the Women’s Health Unit, which I am sure will give them such a moral boost to know all their hard work and good service they provide for the Trust is working.

Thank you again.
