"A&e / Trauma ward"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I was treated in A&e with chronic back pain and Injury Which was also effecting my bowel and bladder. They were extremely thourgh and very sensitive towards my symptoms. I was treated with such care and i was very quickly x rayed and admitted onto the trauma ward. I was kept in and I had further scans, mri, ultrasound which were all very quickly arranged. The nurses on the ward were incredibly nice, caring and friendl. As this was my first time in hospital on my own I was made to feel at home. They regularly checked on me and the standard of care for myself and the other ladies on the ward was outstanding. The only thing is that there aren't enough nurses&they are run off their feet. They need more acknowledgement. Thank you to everyone.
