"Tameside a and e Christmas night"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as a parent/guardian),

Had to bring my 6 year old daughter to a and e at tameside general on Christmas night. We had a short wait to see triage then we're taken straight through to a bed for her, every member of staff we encountered were amazingly helpful, my daughter was in pain and worried yet the Dr's and nurses reassured her throughout the whole visit! Turns out she has broken her elbow and had to have a pot on. We were sorted and off home just over 2 hours later. I would like to say a massive thank you for making me and my daughter comfortable and reassured during our visit! The staff that we encountered are a credit to the hospital!
