"Thank you for my mum's hip replacement surgery"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

Mm mum, aged 83, with hardly any mobility, a heart condition, pacemaker and being diabetic, had a total hip replacement a few days ago.

She has been waiting for 3 years and due to other health problems and continued health problems she was delayed treatment. However, all went well, and my Dad and I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all staff concerned in the High Dependency Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Coronary Care Unit and the Elective Surgical Unit

We hope that progress continues now she has been moved to Shire Hill.

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.
