"Care and compassion in current hospital stay"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Maternity care

(as the patient),

I have recently had regular access to the maternity services at Tameside hospital.

Unfortunately they had to deliver bad news to me, from the minute they did this the care and compassion I was shown was second to none. I had an overnight stay on the labour ward and an awful/sad situation was turned into a bearable situation, which I did not think would be possible.

Their care and compassion allowed me to take comfort from the situation. I had two absolutely amazing midwives care for me 'Ann & Olwin'. They truly went out of their way to help myself and my husband.

Everybody I have dealt with has been an inspiration to their profession!
