"Top care for my grand-daughter, from a grateful Nanna xxx"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Paediatrics

(as a relative),


My little grand-daughter Rachel was admitted to the Children's Medical ward in January 2011 and stayed there for a week.

I have to say the care, professionalism and compassion shown to Rachel and the family was absolutely second to none!!

The whole team were absolutely fantastic and she could not have had better care anywhere else. A massive thank you to Dr Masserano and all his team, but also a special thanks to Sister Lewcock, S/N Travis, S/N Chetna and S/N Heidi, you are all absolute angels and a credit to the nursing profession!

I and my family would have no hesitation in coming to Tameside Hospital if needed in the future, god bless you all!!

Love from a grateful Nanna xxx
