"Avoid this hospital at all costs!"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

My partner was here very recently for an operation on his nose, all I can say is that all the staff I came across were the most rude, unprofessional, waste of NHS money I have ever encountered in any hospital. I couldn't stay with my partner because men and women aren't allowed to be together in rooms and that would have been fine but the woman in front was allowed in with her husband because she was scared? So because my partner is male he wasn't scared or anxious? The staff on ward 12 and 14 are a pure disgrace. I have been to the MRI and Tameside hospital numerous times as a patient and visitor and the staff even though over worked are always helpful and friendly. I honestly hope me or my children never have to end up in that awful place with rude, awful staff. And I'm genuinely sorry for any one who has to stay there as a patient. The nhs should invest in new nurses who know how to look after an deal with patients instead of dis interested waste of money they have there.
