"Praise for the service"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I would like to share the letter I sent to Mr Mohammed at Tameside Hospital......

After being referred to you ugently. I was very happy to receive a call the next day for an immediate appointment. You explained clearly your concerns and listened to mine. I was rushed through the system for an xray, colonoscopy and ct scan. The staff in your clinic and the colonoscopy department were kind, helpful and efficient. At such a worrying time, these are the things that make it bearable. I consider myself very lucky to be under your care. I couldnt have received better treatment any where.
