"My father's knee replacement"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

In August this year my father had a full knee replacement at Tameside Hospital. My father would like to say a big thank you to all the staff in the various departments that were involved in the operation and recovery.

My father says that from his arrival to his departure he was treated with respect, dignity and most of all a very high standard of care.

My father would also like to say that his consultant Mr Bari and his team should be applauded for their work.

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 John Goodenough, Director of Nursing at
