"Doctor is wonderful"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I came into hospital in November 2014 under the care of a consultant and team. What a wonderful person! They have made my life wonderful again. They repaired me in a way I never thought would happen, I was living with a problem which I had taken was just a way of life and getting older! Their care and dedication was immense, the team are so caring and friendly and nothing was ever any trouble. I was in hospital for over one week and I had no complaints whatsoever. I attended the after care clinic and again what a caring team. After all the bad press this hospital have I feel the need to write this note to give them the good press they so much deserve. Well done to the doctor and the team. You will always have a good place in my heart. Carol Walker.
