This story has been posted by Healthwatch Tameside on behalf of a member of the public who wanted to remain anonymous. They said...
This lady has been waiting 3 hours for a prescription for her husband who has been a day patient who had to stay in overnight. She spent 4 hours here yesterday as he was supposed to be coming out.
She lives in Oldham but chose to come to Tameside for her husband’s hernia operation.
It is now 2. 10pm and she has been at the hospital since 8. 30am when she was told to collect her husband.
(As the Healthwatch Champion finished the paperwork the lady and her husband were leaving the hospital, at 2. 15pm).
