"Really pleased with the Cardiovascular team at Tameside General Hospital"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After attending A&E and being allowed to return home with chest pain, I received a call the day after from appointments saying I needed to go back in the following week.

On arrival to the cardio out patients, I received an ECG all within 15 minutes of arrival I was then seen and the findings were discussed with me.

The team have updated my GP within a week and I am really pleased with the service I received from the team.

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
