"Worst hospital in the world"

About: Tameside General Hospital

I was recently a patient in Tameside, and can honestly say it was the worst experience of my life.

The 'care' was atrocious, the ward was filthy, and the staff had no time for the patients.

Sadly, this isn't the first time for me or my family.

My father got an infection, and my grandfather preferred to go home to die rather than spend one more second in that place.

Reception wasn't much better - the check in machines never worked, and it is understaffed, and the ones who do work there are not much better.

The reputation it has is well deserved.

I have transferred my care to a different and private hospital.

Nothing has changed

If you want poor service, an infection, and not being kept informed about things, then come to Tameside.

You won't be disappointed.
