"My mum's excellent care"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as a relative),

My 88 year old mum was admitted to the Elective Unit in October for what we thought was a gall bladder procedure. However, following her ERCP she was found to have cancer and was subsequently transferred to the hospice. The care during her three week stay on this ward was absolutely first class. Every single person would have received ten out of ten. Thank you so much to everyone on this ward.
