"A wonderful example of exceptional hospital care"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I had my baby at Tameside General hospital in September 2014. The care I received surpassed my expectations. From the induction, consultant care, caesarean theatre team (in particular), labour ward and maternity ward aftercare - every member of the medical team made the whole process as comfortable as it could be. Always keeping me fully informed. When I felt nervous I was always reassured by empathetic professionals. It was clear that everyone cared about my and my baby's well being.

I would like to say a very big thank you to everyone who was involved in my stay and the delivery of my baby. A wonderful example of exceptional hospital care. I will always, without doubt, return to this hospital for any future pregnancies.
