"Approachable, pleasant and efficient"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

There is plenty of negative comments re TGH, so thought I would post positive feedback about a visit to A&E today.

My son fell at school and sustained a bang and cut to his head, I took him to TGH where he was triaged in approx 5 minutes and then there was lots of consultation, tests and X-rays that followed. All the staff were friendly, approachable, pleasant and importantly were efficient!

Thank you to all in paediatrics.

Response from Helen Howard, Head of Patient Experience, Tameside and Glossop Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust

Many thanks for your feedback about the A&E paediatrics department. The whole team here works hard to make sure that the care given and the environment that children are cared for in is of an exceptional standard.

I shall ensure that all the staff see your lovely comments and we all hope that your son is recovering well.
