"Major surgery"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Gynaecology

(as the patient),

In November 2012 I had an hysterectomy. I was admitted on the womens health unit at Tameside General Hospital, under the care of Dr Hanna and his team.

On the day of my surgery all the staff were very kind and supportive towards me, as I was very nervous and anxious.

The after care I recieved was excellent. Each nurse that looked after me always introduced themselves, and would go out of their way to help and assist me to the bathroom etc...

It annoys me that the hospital is always getting negative comments.

All the staff work very hard and long hours, and should be given more credit.

Thank you to Dr Hanna and all the team for all your kindness and support throughout my operation.

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.
