"no prblems"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I visited a&e on Friday 30th January at 8 15. Seen by triage nurse within 5 mins sent straight to x Ray seen straight away and told I had broken ankle. Wheeled back to reception then seen by doctor and plastered within half an hour. The longest wait was for a porter to take me to physio for crutches. The staff were great and explained everything and kept me at ease. Whilst waiting in New south heartshead reception for my partner, the staff kept an eye on me , one went for a drink for me and kept checking on me because at that point I was starting to feel unwell. the staff are great in my opinion despite being busy and deserve more credit
