Response from Peter Denton, Healthwatch Manager, Healthwatch Tameside

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is good to hear that you had an appointment at a convenient time, you were seen promptly and thought the staff were good.

Healthwatch is independent of the NHS and we have two main roles. One is to develop and provide an information signposting service to help people to choose the right care for them. The other is to gather and analyse patient experiences so we can identify and influence changes in services when they are needed.

Your story might be useful to someone trying to decide which hospital to choose for an appointment.

Response from Tameside General Hospital

Thank you for posting your comment on the Patient Opinion website. It is pleasing to note that you felt that the “staff were great” and your appointment was timely. Kind regards John Goodenough 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 John Goodenough, Director of Nursing at john.goodenough@tgh.nhs.uk
