She had a radical mastectomy 23 years ago, with no reconstruction. She now attends Tameside Hospital for check-ups and prosthetics. She is happy with the follow-up service and after-care that she continues to receive.

‘’Would you like to help the hospital to improve its services further? We are currently looking for patients and carers to become involved in a development called “Patient Stories”. We want to know more about our services from the point of view of those who received them – what was good, bad, what could be improved, what should be changed.
