"Efficient A&E care"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I had an operation at Wrightington on Saturday. By Thursday a sceptic boil appeared on my right hand which I thought was related to the op.

I went to Tameside on Thursday evening. My past experience has been mixed in terms of time although service has always been good.

I was seen in 1 1/2 hours and the problem dealt with very well. The service seems to have been made much more efficient and the staff were excellent and informative.
