"care during hospital stay"

About: Tameside General Hospital

Anything else?

My husband has just spent 2 weeks in the Surgical Unit at Tameside Hospital, the care that he has received by all the staff has been extremely good, we cant praise them enough. He was under the care of a consultant and his team who did all they could to help my husband during his stay for an operation on a Popliteal Aneurysm. The only negative comment I have to say is that no help was put in place for when my husband came home, his mobility is a problem and I did try to find some help but without success, I have had to do that myself since he came home last Monday. Apart from that comment we can only praise the care he received, I hope these comments will be passed on to the Unit. Thank you.
