"I cannot fault them, the care was excellent"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

I came in via A&E, turns out I had ruptured ectopic pregnancy and needed emergency surgery. The care I received of Debbie was excellent and Vicky who I believe is an auxiliary is absolutely lovely – she reassured me + even held my hand.

After surgery Alyscan + Helen were my nurses and never stopped attending to me as I was bleeding badly. These 2 nurses never stopped all night I know TGH gets bad press but on this occasion I cannot fault them please pass on my appreciation!
