Having visited my doctor at the Tameside General Hospital, I received my appointment a week later at the breast clinic.
I knew it would be an all day appointment so I went prepared. I arrived at exactly 9:15am, after 20 minutes, i was called and waited a good hour to go into the examination room to see a doctor. Again, I waited a 10 minutes, undressed on the table before the doctor finally appeared.
The doctor was very friendly and gave me a through examination. He recommended a scan so I was sent downstairs for the scan and had to wait 45 minutes. After the scan I went back to the clinic. It was then lunch time so I had to wait another hour before going back to collect my scan results. I eventually got the all clear at 5:00pm
All staff were friendly and attentive. They even offered snacks for the patients that had still been waiting from morning to mid afternoon.
The waiting but I did come away with my results so there was no prolonged worry.
Tameside hospital has had very bad press in the past. I have however, visited the hospital on four occasions for breast lumps and have always had good treatment by friendly doctors and nurses in that area of the hospital.
