About: Tameside General Hospital

My mother was admitted from her nursing home this Monday, the care she received was excellent. The nurses and doctors were lovely, very apologetic about waiting times etc.. My mother was there most of the day but had numerous test including 2 ecg's, ct scan, X-rays blood test etc.my only concern was lack of space and beds, many patients out in the a&e corridors... Not the hospitals fault if there are no beds to spare. More funding needed by the government. Tameside receives enough bad press, from me too about three years ago, but thanks to all the a&e staff for being so good with my mum.
