"Excellent care of my mother over Bank Holiday Weekend"

About: Tameside General Hospital / General medicine Tameside General Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

My mother was admitted to ward 41 with a heart attack. Over the bank holiday weekend she developed a severe chest infection.

I would like to send a deep hearted thank you to Dr Pearson for the excellent treatment she gave my mother. We were all so grateful for her honesty and explanation about what was going on.

I wish there were more doctors like her around. Thankyou.
