About: Tameside General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I was admitted to DCSU in late September for an Arthroscopy.

I was quite nervous due to a previous experience, but from the minute I arrived I was treated with respect, professionally and efficiently.

The staff although very busy, were friendly, especially the Theater staff and doctors, who all introduced themselves and made me feel comfortable and helped me to relax.

Everything ran like clockwork and I was home for 6pm, and felt great.

I would just like to say thank you.
