"I arrived as an emergency with ..."

About: Tameside General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I arrived as an emergency with chest pain and a rapid heart beat, and was treated by the A&E nurses and doctors the moment i arrived. I am sure that my life was saved by the care and attention given to me by the A&E nursing staff and doctors,although i don't remember very much, my family told me that at one time there was around 11 nurseing staff and doctors treating my condition and its to those nurses and doctors i would like to say thank you for saving my life.When i was stable and well enough i was transferred to CCU, the nursing staff treated me with sensitivity and constant care which was greatly appreciated.

After five days in CCU i was transferred to Ward 31 and again the staff treated me with care and consideration, finally i was moved to Wythenshaw for further treatment. I would like to say well done to Tameside A&E, CCU and Ward 31

What could be improved

Can not think of anything

Anything else?

I know Tameside have some very bad press, but i could not have been treated better
