"What an Excellent Service"

About: Tameside General Hospital

Needed to have a Cardiology appointment- the only one to offer appointments within 66 days was Tameside. The referral from my GP to actual check up at Tameside was less than 2 weeks.

The reception/ desk at Cardiology were both professional, welcoming and efficient. The appointment time 9.20 allowed me to be weighed etc and have an ECG- The consultant then saw me [with a sound knowledge of my case information] and we discussed my situation.

I was initially rather concerned by the negative reviews but decided to go ahead so I could have a referral before February [66 days minimum] at a different hospital.

Really impressed by the entire experience at Tameside Cardiology, would go again but hope I don't have to.

Thanks to all the staff
