"Superb care from Tameside maternity ward"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I have had 2 babies at Tameside (Nov. 06 and January 2011) and would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff who work in the maternity department.

At a time when women are feeling at their most vulnerable and need support, the maternity staff are superb.

Both my births were traumatic (one was shoulder dystocia, the other a c-section) but the care i received was fantastic from auxillary staff to consultants. I really cannot praise it highly enough.

Response from Tameside Hospital Foundation Trust

Thank you very much for these kind comments about the quality of maternity care at Tameside Hospital. I am sorry that both of your births were traumatic, but pleased that our staff were able to support you in what were undoubtedly difficult times for you.

I will make sure your kind comments about the staff are relayed to them.

With kind regards and best wishes

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?
