What I liked
The knowledge and professionalism of the staff - from Auxillary to Consultant.
What could be improved
Communication from Doctor to Patient could have been improved slightly. (The nurse assumed I knew I was being kept in after attending A & E but the Doctor hadn't told me).
I've attended Tameside hospital several times in the last year, both as an Outpatient and had day case surgery. I will now be having my hysterectomy there, as I feel that I trust the staff and they work very hard. I feel that they are competent, knowledgeable and above all, very caring.
If you do your reaearch, you'll see that every hospital has it's share of horror stories, however, as Tameside is our local hospital, its only these that we hear about. I also feel that they're not always portrayed in a fair and just manner.
I can only go from my own experiences and I would personally recommend Tameside to anyone I know.
