Whilst my father was a patient in Tameside Hospital, communication was very unreliable to have correct people at varying meetings especially as the patient’s doctor’s surgery comes under Oldham Pennine Trust and Tameside Hospital team don’t work the same or deliver same service. This is very frustrating on discharge and because of differing boundary arrangements hard to have everything in place.
The hospital social worker was good. The availability of paper work could be improved.
