"An absolute asset to our NHS"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I have fortunately never had to use a Hospital prior to this visit. I visited Tameside Hospital in lots of pain. I had visited my dentist and received treatment two days before.

Following this treatment, the pain increased, my face and throat swelled. I tried to manage the pain but it was just getting worse. I was hesitant to attend a&e Tameside as all you seem to hear is bad reviews.

The service I received from start to finish was absolutely superb. I received immediately relief, X-Ray, additional treatment and pain relief. The staff were symapathic, caring, efficient, professional, honest, skilled and overall an absolute asset to our NHS.

Well done Tameside Hospital and thank you very much for the treatment I received.
