"I would like to say a huge thank you to all the parties involved in my care"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I came to Tameside hospital with chronic stomach pains, which I thought was crohns disease. This did turn out to be part of the problem the other was an obstruction. I had surgery to remove both problems; I was making good progress when I got an abscess in two places which were then also removed.

I would like to say a huge thank you to all the parties involved in my care, the nurses and care staff were great and the team of doctors were excellent I couldn’t of asked for better care.

Response from Philip Dylak, Director of Nursing, Tameside Hospital Foundation Trust

Thank you very much for posting these comments.

I have passed on the kind comments you have made to the staff of the surgical unit at Tameside Hospital, as I assume this was the ward you attended.

I hope you are much better after your unfortunate setback.

Best wishes

Philip Dylak

Director of Nursing

Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed. Want to know more about what’s involved?

Please contact Philip Dylak, Director of Nursing at philip.dylak@tgh.nhs.uk
